Psychology Research Reading Groups Forming

Psychology Research Reading Groups Forming

Finding a research tribe can be difficult in a large University.  As scholars interested in psychology, one of the most powerful ways to engage in scholarship is to create opportunities for collaboration in areas of mutual interest. Leading the way for research community membership increases awareness about our SIG while giving our interests a more formal place among the scholarship of the Research Hub. In the next few weeks, research reading groups will be established in the following areas:

  • Traumatic Stress: Disorders, Treatment, and Developing Science

  • Addiction and Substance Use: Current Issues and Critical Interventions

  • Brain and Behavior: Topics  and Trends in Neuropsychology 

The purpose of these groups is to advance scholarship through a structured review of current, evidence-based, peer-reviewed literature. Outcomes include a group publication or poster, paper, or panel presentation. Groups will follow a sessional calendar to be determined by the reading group leaders and Dr. Ladd. A list of publication resources and conferences will be provided. 
 
Group leaders advance scholarship toward Academic Review as taking leadership roles in the Mental Health and Psychological Well-being Research Community:
 
  • Coordinate literature selection with Dr. Ladd
  • Reach out to students, faculty, and alumni interested in reading groups 
  • Coordinate meetings 
  • Report session results, findings, or actionable items
