National Psychology Summit is at UWGB this week
UW-Green Bay Prof. Regan A. R. Gurung (Psychology, Human Development) is joined by college psychology faculty from across the U.S. for the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Summit on National Assessment of Psychology (SNAP) this week (June 21-24), on the UW‑Green Bay campus. “Given the growing mental health needs of the region, better psychological training starting at the undergrad level is the first step toward ensuring better trained individuals to serve these growing needs,” Gurung said. Gurung says that there are national guidelines for psychology, but no easy ways to measure if students are learning them. “This summit is designed to create ways to help college instructors all over the nation and the world to better teach psychology… Better assessment and national guidelines help raise the bar for teaching everywhere. Also representing UWGB are professors Kristin Vespia and Georjeanna Wilson-Doenges (Psychology, Human Development). More here.
