Announcement and Update 16.07.19
Amy Summers is the Psychology Group's new co-ordinator.
We are a friendly, informal learning group and we cover a wide range of psychology related topics at our meetings. Drawing on the interests of members wherever possible, we have developed an approach based on member participation and plenty of discussion. This is a group for those of us interested in the importance and significance of psychological issues in our everyday lives. Please don’t feel you need to be an expert in the field to join the group because we welcome your curiosity and enthusiasm just as much.
The usual format for our meetings is a short introductory presentation on the topic of the month followed by a constructive discussion in which we hope members will participate while also giving space to and listening to the contributions of others. Because we often discuss topics of an emotional nature as well as issues of mental health and well being, members may at times reveal aspects of their personal experience and for this reason we ask everyone present to regard any personal disclosures as confidential to the group. We hope you will enjoy exploring aspects of this fascinating subject area.
The group meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 2.00 - 4.00pm at the Quaker Meeting House, Ticklemore Street, Totnes.
There is a charge of £2.00 per session at present to cover the cost of room rental.
