Psi Chi Distinguished Lecture

The Science of Inside Out

In this talk, I will detail the some of the science-based insights that led to elements of the film, Inside Out. I will focus in particular on four themes: that people are their emotions; that emotions guide our thought and memory; that emotions shape our social interactions; and that the good life requires a mixture of many emotions, both negative and positive.

Psi Chi Session
Career Options and Strategies for Success
for All Psychology Graduates

9:009:50 a.m., Barcelona Room
Chair: Elizabeth L. Campbell (Whitworth University)
Presenter: R. Eric Landrum (Boise State University)
Psychology educators often present the getting a good job with your bachelor’s degree vs. going to graduate school in psychology as divergent routes. Although the destinations are different, the preparation and strategies for success for both routes are surprisingly similar. During this presentation, I highlight the similarities over the differences, and provide evidence-based arguments about how outside-of-class (i.e., high impact) practices are vital for all psychology graduates, regardless of the intended career path.

Psi Chi Session
The Tapestry of Difference:
Weaving Cognition and Affect Into Psychology

Chair: Ethan A. McMahan (Psi Chi Western Regional Vice-President; Western Oregon University)
Presenter: Jessica Henderson Daniel (Harvard Medical School, Boston Children's Hospital)
Learning about human differences includes cognition and affect. Providing a balance between the two as emotionally laden topics are raised can be a challenge. The presentation will include critical concepts that can guide one through learning about differences and provide inclusive and flexible lens to integrate an awareness and respect of those differences in practice, research, and education.
