National Psychology Week (NPW), 14 - 20 November 2010, aims to increase public awareness about psychology, psychological issues and the role psychologists play in community wellbeing through three distinct initiatives:
1. Events, presentations and displays hosted by psychologists across Australia;
2. A national research survey on a topic of community interest; and
3. A national media campaign to assist public understanding of psychology.
National Psychology Week begins on the second Sunday in November each year and is an initiative of the Australian Psychological Society (APS).
The JCU Department of Psychology is promoting National Psychology Week with a display of resources on the first floor of the Mabo Library. Come in and have a look at the range of resources available, including contact details for the JCU Psychology Clinic and other local psychologists. While you are checking out the display, write your name and contact details on a sticky note, drop it into the box at the display, and go in the draw to win a book voucher. There are also other giveaways to be found on the display, all promoting National Psychology Week.
