Seventh Annual Mental Health Research Symposium

This Friday, April 16, 2021, the Psi Chi Chapter at MSP is hosting the Seventh Annual Mental Health Research Symposium. This year’s Symposium will be a virtual event from 12:30 PM to 5:00 PM.

The Symposium is an annual event put on by Psi Chi to highlight student research and offer an opportunity for students to gain valuable conference presentation skills in a local, supportive environment.

In a typical year, MSP welcomes undergraduate and graduate students from other universities in southeast Michigan to campus to present research posters and discuss their findings. Students do not have to be a member of Psi Chi to present or attend!

In addition to poster sessions, the Symposium typically has one or more panel discussions on current topics of interest in clinical psychology. Often, these panel discussions are led by MSP faculty.

This year, there will be two 45-minute poster sessions and panel discussions.

We are delighted to welcome Dr. Kanako Taku as this year’s Symposium keynote speaker. Dr. Taku will present a talk entitled,“Cross-Cultural Research on Post-traumatic Growth and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).” As a clinical psychologist certified in Japan, she has implemented psycho-educational programs focusing on resiliency and the phenomenon called post-traumatic growth for youth.

Registration to attend the Symposium is free, but you must pre-register because space is limited. Register today!
