2018 is a very important year for the UCD School of Psychology, and one which we are keen to mark with a series of entertaining evenings for all. This lecture series coincides with the 60th anniversary of the very first Psychology degree programme in Ireland, established in UCD in 1958, and marks the 50th session of the UCD Psychological Society. The series includes six evening lectures hosted on campus that will be delivered by pre-eminent national and international speakers in the field of Psychology such as Prof. Elizabeth Loftus, University of California-the world leader in the field of eyewitness testimony and false memory-who has delivered expert testimony in high profile trials such as the OJ Simpson trial, Dr Tony Bates, Founding Director of Headstrong who has changed the field of youth mental health in Ireland, and child psychologist Dr David Coleman who has been helping the nation’s parents answer some of the toughest questions. Information on three more upcoming lectures in Spring 2019 in fields such as neuropsychology and sports psychology will be released soon.
