insight4me Psychology – Psychopathology With Dr Lucy Oldfield From Goldsmiths, University of London & Dr Jo Bower From University of East Anglia
October 2 @ 11:00 - 12:00
- University of East Anglia: Dr Jo Bower, Lecturer in Psychology, School of Psychology will present Sleep on it and feel better in the morning? The influence of sleep on our mental health. Have you ever wondered why things are harder to cope with if you’ve had a bad night’s sleep? In this talk, we will consider how sleep changes our emotional responding, and look at how this may be important for the relationship between sleep and mental health.
- Goldsmiths, University of London: Dr Lucy Oldfield, Senior Lecturer in Clinical Psychology, Department of Psychology will discuss Behavioural Experiments which are an important tool in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) (but also in other modalities) and have an evidence base showing they are the most effective part of treatment for OCD, other anxiety disorders and for working with depression. Lucy will also contrast how using these experiments in therapy is similar and different from the treatment of phobias.
In this insight4me Psychology online event for schools and colleges, University of East Anglia and Goldsmiths, University of London will each have roughly 30 minutes to deliver a punchy, interactive topic based ‘micro’ talk. Within an overall session theme of Psychopathology, the universities have the freedom to choose their own focus and use the time to convey the key points of the case studies for the students.
insight4me is a series of subject specific webinars for Year 12 & 13 students, and equivalent. The sessions directly support students’ current studies by giving an insight into particular curriculum areas whilst affording an understanding of how these subjects continue beyond A-levels, T-levels, IB, BTEC and equivalent qualifications, and how they vary between universities.
Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.
As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.
Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students (and equivalent) studying, or with a possible interest in studying, Psychology and related disciplines. Student groups, and individual students and teachers are very welcome to join us.
Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the 2 topics and discuss some of the key elements in advance. Students can also think about questions they have about studying Psychology at university level.
The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans (similar to Zoom) and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard.
