Psychology Lecture Series Promotes Mental Health

Psychology Lecture Series Promotes Mental Health

In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Week from Oct. 6-12, the Brookhaven College Psychology Department has hosted "Put Some Snap in Your Synapse!", a four-part Lunch and Learn Lecture Series that began Oct. 16 and will end Nov. 21.

Bill Sigsbee, faculty, kicked off the lecture series with a closer look at Kohlberg's Stages of Moral Development with his talk, "How Moral is Your Judgment?" on Oct. 16. Bill involved those attending in several hands-on evaluative activities where participants could place their decisions in different levels of moral growth. The turnout for the first event overfilled the room, leaving several people standing and sharing hand-outs.

The second event was held by Mike Garza Oct. 23 where "The Psychology of Luck" was discussed with over 130 students. On Nov. 7, Steve Link, faculty, opened up "The Mind of a Terrorist" and discussed the psychological history of these violent factions.

John Williams, faculty, will wrap up "Put Some Snap in Your Synapse" with his talk, "The Healing of Humor", on Nov. 21. This last lecture is scheduled from noon-1 p.m. in Bldg. Q, Room Q201 with lunch provided. For any questions regarding the Psychology Department Lunch and Learn Lecture Series, contact Sam Govea at Ext. 4216 in the Social Sciences Division.
