Psychological Society of Ireland to host free public talks on May 12th

The Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI) is hosting Psychology Matters Day (#psychmatters) on Saturday afternoon 12 May 2018 in Galway, Dublin, Limerick and Waterford. The venue for Waterford will be the Auditorium, Main Cork Road Campus in Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT).

Psychology plays an important part in various aspects of our lives so talks at WIT will focus on a range of topics such as anxiety in sport, OCD and what we can learn from athletes.

Terri Morrissey, PSI’s Chief Executive, says "one of our key objectives for the Society is to bring the vast amount of psychological knowledge into the public awareness so that people can learn more about themselves, their everyday lives and wellbeing, and challenges facing them, their families and society. We are very excited about this initiative and look forward to welcoming people to the events in Cork and around the country."

All members of the public are welcome to attend. As this is a drop-in event, no booking is required.

Psychology Matters at WIT will run from 2pm – 4.25pm. For further information visit http://www.psychologicalsociety.ie
