This talk organised by the
South West branch of the British Psychological Society will be given by Dr Michaela Gummerum from Plymouth University.
Michaela will discuss her work and interest in social and moral development (behaviour, emotions and reasoning) from childhood and through the lifespan, which has involved investigating children’s friendships and parent-child relationships.
Since arriving at the University in 2007, Michaela's made an enormous impact upon the School of Psychology and the Centre for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. She's been proactive in seeking out funding opportunities and collaborations, as well as in setting up the necessary infrastructure she needs to develop her work. She's published numerous high-impact papers, has obtained a series of grants (with more currently in preparation), and has established good relations with local schools.
This free event is open to all, including British Psychological Society (BPS) members, students and the general public. The talk will be held upstairs in the conference room of The China House. Please note that seating is limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis. Email for any queries with the subject heading 'South West PiP Sep 2014'.
