Description

We are proud to annouce that the Psychology Conference at the University of West London will be running for its third year!

Our Psychology Conference is designed to complement areas of the AQA A-Level syllabus and is free to attend for Level 3 students and staff following this course, as well as Level 3 students with an interest in studying Psychology at university who are not undertaking the A-Level programme.

The event will include 4 talks. These are:

Aggression

Devlivered by Dr Anke Goerzig, this talk will give an overview on the topic of aggresssion in human behaviour. You will be introduced to the different types and functions of aggressive behaviour from a biological, developmental and social perspective using most prominent psychological theories.

Forensic Psychology

Dr Cynthia Alejandra Cordova Sanchez will be delivering a talk based on Forensic Psychology. Forensic Psychology represents the application of psychological practice and expertise to the legal frameworks in England and Wales. Ranging from understanding the nature of offending, rehabilitating offenders, assessing future risk in extremely violent individuals, offender profiles, hostage negotiation, providing consultation to the Criminal Justice System and the public, and advertising the courts on issues of psychological interest (eg. eye witness testimony).

Schizophrenia is a form of psychosis

Schizophrenia is a form of psychosis: the inability to tell the difference between the real and the unreal, with the most well-known symptoms of schizophrenia being delusions and hallucinations. In this talk we will discuss the symptoms of schizophrenia and how schizophrenia impacts on an individual’s life. This talk will be delivered by Dr Gary Britton.

Gender

Gender is an aspect of our social world that affects a lot of our behaviour; the way we dress, the activities we choose. In this talk Dr Ben Hine will examine how our ideas about femininity and masculinity affect our prosocial behaviour, particularly the way in which we are nice towards others, and how children/ adolescents relate gender to prosocial behaviour.
