Major psychology event held in York

Over 100 psychologists attended the Society’s North East of England Branch 4th Annual Conference in York on 21 October 2011.

The event focussed on occupational and forensic psychology, and explored work, life, happiness and deviance. Two keynote speakers appeared at the Conference.

Chartered Psychologist Mike Berry, presented “A personal reflection on forensic psychology, or as they say: sex, violence, drugs, rock ‘n roll and Man United!”.

Acclaimed Occupational Psychologist Dr Angela Carter spoke about “Happiness, jobs and everyday life”, using research conducted by Emeritus Professor and Fellow of the Society Peter Warr.

Prior to the event the Chair of the branch Dr Roxane Gervais said:

“We are delighted with this year’s line-up. Mike Berry appeared at this event back in 2008 and was a big success and extremely popular with the delegates. There will be a lot of interest in Angela Carter’s keynote too as she has used research from Peter Warr, who is highly renowned.

“Some of the most eminent psychologists in the north east of England will be in attendance at the conference, which has become a key date in the calendar for psychologists in the region.”
