The world of selection and assessment is constantly evolving as we learn more about the factors that contribute to job success. In this lively and participative event, you will learn about the research behind psychometric testing and some examples of how different instruments can be used in organisational settings. You will also learn about emerging trends for the future and how to make sure that you are implementing best practice when you use psychometric tests.

Stanley Milgram’s experiments on obedience to authority are amongst the most famous and controversial studies in the history of psychology.  For over fifty years we thought we knew what Milgram’s studies told us – that seemingly ordinary members of the public would administer potentially lethal electric shocks to an innocent victim in response to commands from an authority figure.  The studies have thus been used to show just how easily people can be led into following orders.  However, recent work has pointed to the dramatic conclusion that, in fact, Milgram’s studies show p

This day will give students the opportunity to see what life is like as a professional psychologist and provide an insight into the kinds of career paths available to them with a degree in psychology. Hopefully this should be an exciting opportunity for all students who are thinking about studying psychology anywhere in the UK, or even further afield.

The day will include a mixture of practical activities, workshops and talks. The activities will help to bring the subject to life and the talks will help to show what it’s like working in different areas of psychology.

Swearing is a fascinating aspect of language. For instance, evidence from people with Tourette's suggests swearing may not rely on the usual parts of the brain where language is organised. In addition, while people tend to think of the use of four letter words as a modern phenomenon, the reality is that the earliest recorded uses of these words date back 1,000 years.

Childlessness is increasingly common in Western countries, and the UK has one of the highest rates of childlessness in Europe. Although it is difficult to accurately estimate how many women are voluntarily childless, or ‘childfree’ as is often the preferred term, evidence strongly suggests that rates of voluntary childlessness are also on the rise.

The social and communications problems in autism are well known about and lots of research has examined these. Researchers and clinicians however often ignore the sensory problems common in autism. Recent diagnostic criteria of autism include insensitivity to pain as a specific example of this abnormality. Research evidence here is however limited. During this talk I will consider what we mean when we think of pain, what it might mean to have altered pain sensitivity and some implications of misinterpreting these data.

Please join us for an evening of thought and debate.

As professionals in the field of psychology, the work we do is impacted by and at times informs our work within the various settings we exist. How do psychology professionals engage with social justice issues? How are we and our clients affected by cuts to mental health services? What can we offer clients who are faced with prejudice, or unsettlement from their homelands? What is the role of psychology and psychologists in contemporary times?

Why do children in poverty in the UK perform less well in school than their middle class peers? This talk examines the problem as it is understood by British politicians and policymakers: as a result of a lack of discipline and aspiration. Against this a more complex explanation for educational underachievement is offered, which rests on the concept of a set of binds, or barriers, which interrupt learning. These insights reveal children's school lives to be highly challenging, despite their ingenuity and effort in trying to overcome the challenges that they face.
