Psi Chi Distinguished Lecturer

Lessons From Indigenous Psychology:
The Contemporary Serpent Handlers of Appalachia and the Psychological
Study of Religion

The critical yet sympathetic study of indigenous traditions of faith that survive in opposition to their larger host cultures allow for a nuanced understanding of beliefs and practices otherwise dismissed as bizarre of distortions of reality. In this sense one can see Appalachia as American’s Tibet with the same cultural and psychological dynamics operating.

Psi Chi Invited Speaker

Is Sport Psychology Really a Thing?
A Day in the Life of a Sport Psychologist

This discussion will focus on the daily life of a sport psychologist, the evolution and growth of the field of sport psychology, pathways for students to pursue this career, and the range of problems that athletes experience. We will discuss graduate programs that offer training and professional organizations that support the field. We will discuss a couple of case examples and the interventions that were employed.
