Join us at our Psychology Trick or Treat Taster Day

Closing date for registrations: 16 October 12.00am

An ideal time of year for Access and Year 13 students to obtain vital information pertinent to their higher education decisions and imminent UCAS applications. Students will also increase their understanding of various psychological perspectives linked to the A-level syllabus.

Sessions include:
> Investigating paranormal beliefs and telepathy
This session supports student learning in AQA A-level Research Methods. Specific areas covered are self-report techniques (questionnaires), collection of behavioural data and correlational analysis.

> Psychology of ghosts
In all human cultures people have believed in ghosts or spirits and hunting them has become a popular pastime for many. We look at how hunting for ghosts and ideas about them differ from scientific theories. By doing this we are able to explore concepts of falsifiability and validity through examination of theories of ghosts and the ways people try to measure haunting phenomena.

> Ethics of scaring participants
This session supports learning in A-level Issues and Debates in Psychology. Focussing on ethical implications of research, the session covers topics such as informed consent, avoidance of harm and debriefing.

This event is fully booked - Contact Lee Musson to be placed on a reserve list.
