Psychology Day, May 4, Celebrates Research, Careers, and Current Issues in Psychology

Posted on 4/26/2018 1:54:49 PM

The day-long event in Uhler Hall will offer something for everyone on the campus of Indiana University of Pennsylvania, say organizers of the event scheduled for Friday, May 4.

Psychology Day begins at 10:00 a.m. with a keynote speech by Ralph May.

May, a licensed psychologist and clinical director of the Indiana County Guidance Center, will discuss current issues in suicide, mental illness, and substance abuse.

The event will continue with panel discussions about career opportunities and research talks by students and faculty in psychology. Student research will include award-winning research from the 2018 Graduate Scholars Forum and thesis presentations by several undergraduates in the Psychology Honors program.

The concluding panel (3:25–4:25 p.m.) will include faculty from different psychology programs at IUP clarifying their fields and programs (e.g., “What’s the difference between School Psychology and Clinical Psychology?”). This discussion should prove extremely helpful to any students considering a career in psychological services.
