University of Suffolk to welcome leading Psychologist

12 Mar 2018 11:45AM

A leading Psychologist in his field will be visiting the University of Suffolk to deliver a talk to students and the public.

Professor Tom Buchanan is a highly experienced professional working from the University of Westminster. Much of his research has focused on web-based psychological measurement and the validity of online research techniques. His current research interests include assessment of personality and cognitive problems, often using internet-based techniques.  

His talk entitled ‘Questionnaire measures of memory problems: should we just forget it?’ Will take place at the University of Suffolk’s Waterfront Building, Lecture Theatre 1, on Wednesday 14 March at 4pm.

The director of Suffolk Psychology Society, Dr Fiorentina Sterkaj, Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University, said ''we warmly invite all members of the public to join us at the event where Professor Buchanan, will explore what questionnaire measures are actually telling us when investigating cognitive problems. For example how reliable are questionnaires when diagnosing dementia? This talk will also consider how individual differences in personality are key when completing such questionnaires.”

After the talk attendees will have the opportunity to meet Professor Buchanan and to network with other academics and professionals from across the region.
