Guest Speaker: “The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on children with special educational needs, and their parents”, Dr Umar Toseeb and Professor Kathryn Asbury, University of York
On-line Email c.j.johnstone@warwick.ac.uk for link

Speakers: Dr Umar Toseeb and Professor Kathryn Asbury, Department of Education, University of York

Title: “The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on children with special educational needs, and their parents”

Host: Professor Dieter Wolke

Abstract:

Children and adolescents with special educational needs and their parents are likely to have been disproportionally affected during the COVID-19 pandemic. There has been little focus on how the mental health of these vulnerable families developed during the pandemic. We asked parents/carers to complete online questionnaires about their own and their child’s mental health at one or more time points between 23rd March 2020 (at the onset of the first lockdown) and 10th October 2020 (when schools fully reopened for face-to-face teaching). During the talk we will discuss stability and change in mental health using both quantitative and qualitative data. We will also discuss how these findings differed for those with autism compared to those with other special educational needs. Findings will be discussed with reference to implications for support as we emerge from the pandemic.

Language and Learning Group Seminar: "Vocabulary and grammar: their relationship and their role in predicting comprehension in bilingual children", Alessandra Valentini, University of Surrey
Online - TEAMS link here

Alessandra Valentini from the University of Surrey will be giving a talk titled Vocabulary and grammar: their relationship and their role in predicting comprehension in bilingual children (abstract below).

-----------------

Abstract:

Strong correlations between vocabulary and grammar are well attested in language development in monolingual and bilingual children. Research on monolingual children has also shown that listening and reading comprehension are predicted by a range of language and cognitive skills, including vocabulary and language abilities; but less is known about predictors of listening and reading comprehension in bilingual children and about the role of language input. In this talk I will present longitudinal data collected from a sample of 100 bilingual children between the ages of 5;8 and 6;8, tested on a range of language and cognitive skills. These data allow us to explore the directionality of the relationship between vocabulary and grammar in bilingual children. With this data we also explore the predictors of comprehension in bilingual children, showing the particular importance of vocabulary depth and morphological knowledge in predicting bilinguals' language comprehension.

Guest Speaker: "Training can improve decision making" Professor Carey Morewedge, Boston University
On-line Email c.j.johnstone@warwick.ac.uk for link

Speaker: Professor Carey Morewedge

Carey K. Morewedge is a Professor of Marketing and Everett W. Lord Distinguished Faculty Scholar in the Questrom School of Business at Boston University. Broadly, Professor Morewedge's research examines psychological biases in judgment and decision making. He identifies their causes, consequences, and develops interventions to mitigate them. Through this lens, it explores two substantive areas. The first is on psychological determinants of value in its many forms, including utility, money, choices, and consummatory behavior. A more recent second focus is on psychological barriers to the adoption of new technologies, such as digital goods and artificial intelligence.

On-line Email c.j.johnstone@warwick.ac.uk for link

Speaker: Professor Catherine Tamis-LeMonda, Professor of Applied Psychology, NYU Steinhardt

I conduct my research at NYU Steinhardt's Play and Language Lab, where we examine infant and toddler learning and development in social and cultural contexts. I seek to understand how developing skills across a variety of domains reciprocally affect one another concurrently and over time (the theoretical construct of “developmental cascades”).

UNICA – EUTOPIA TRAIN webinar & workshop: “How to engage citizens in your research?”
Via Zoon

During the webinar (12:30-13:45), several international experts will share their experiences with citizen science projects. They will inspire the audience with insights on how to build and keep sustainable relationships and fruitful collaborations with citizens, both at the start of and during a citizen science research project.

The webinar is open to anyone interested in citizen science: participation is not bound to specific experience in the field.

 

The workshop (14:00-16:00) will focus on communication with citizens, introducing you to tools that can be used to start up a citizen science project and motivate citizen scientists to get involved. Participants will be able to introduce and discuss their own (ideas for a) citizen science project in interactive working groups. Therefore, this workshop will only allow for a maximum of 25 participants. We advise to register quickly below!

Participants of the workshop preferably have some experience and/or strong interest and concrete plans in citizen science projects.

European Congress of Psychology

Runs from Wednesday, July 05 to Friday, July 07.

Statement of Interest

Scientific member role spec

The BPS is hosting the ECP 2023 on behalf of the European Federation of Psychology Associations in Brighton on 5-7 July 2023.

The theme for the event is Psychology Uniting Communities for a Sustainable World.

We are looking for a group of practitioners and researchers united by their energy and passion for psychology. We appeal to people from across all domains of psychology to come together in ensuring a dynamic, innovative and far-reaching scientific programme that reflects a blend of knowledge and experience representing the best of psychology. The theme of uniting communities requires psychology to build strong collaborations across borders between academics and practitioners alike. ·

The role of the Committee includes:

  • The responsibility for managing the scientific programme, including call for submissions, and decision making on selection of submitted abstracts and presenters.
  • Ensuring diversity and inclusion in all aspects relating to the scientific programme, including consideration of technology, accessibility for submissions, presentations and participation.
  • Encouraging wide participation from psychologists from different domains and regions Ensuring that the type and form of the congress programme promotes sustainability. For example, the call for submissions for an e-poster system which will replace hard copy and, that participation in the conference is possible virtually to its greatest extent. Applications are welcomed from across the membership – including academics, teachers, researchers and practitioners.

Applications are welcomed from across the membership - including academics, teachers, researchers and practitioners. We are also seeking undergraduate, postgraduate and early career members to ensure representation at all stages of the career pathway. The Society welcomes encourages applications from the following groups of people who are under-represented within our committees. Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people. People with disabilities and, people who identify as LGBTQ+. We welcome all people who have the potential to help humanity in solving the problems that our world faces today. A statement of interest form and member role spec are attached.ResearchTeam@bps.org.uk no later than Friday 15th October.
