Aims of PsychSoc

These are the main aims which PsychSoc seeks to deliver for its members:
1) Organising guest lectures – guest talks from professionals in the psychological field (previous lectures have included talks from Professor Alan Baddeley).
2) Organising study group sessions– these will be organised based on member request for specific topics.  These may be focused on a specific topic which you may find challenging or on general skills such as using SPSS.
3) Arranging Social events – these range from more chilled meet-ups during the day, to themed events in the SU/Ormskirk. All these events cater for everyone, with alcoholic and non-alcoholic options always available when in bars.
4) Being a peer support network- this can help support personal or uni-related difficulties,  and all events are safe spaces where everyone is welcome.
