University of Southampton Psychology Post Graduate Research Conference – posters

The Southampton PGR conference concluded today – the ninth psychology conference but the very first to be carried out online. We were delighted by (and very proud of) the contributions of the Ed Psych Trainees to the conference, which included Year 2 research posters, Year 3 thesis presentations and two members of the Year 2 cohort – Sophie Smith and Amber Newell – sitting on the four person conference planning committee (and what an incredible job they did under these exceptional circumstances).

Please find below the Ed Psych SSRP research posters. These are:

  • EBSA (Emotionally Based School Avoidance) Professionals’ Perception of Group Supervision by Lauren Baggley, Beckett Markland, Amber Newell, Cora Sargeant and Andrea Morgan.
  • Emotional Literacy Support Assistants’ (ELSAs) experiences of the Resilience Ball Framework in Schools by Lindsay Elder, Alex Hampstead, Cara Hens, Cath Lowther and Hanna Kovshoff.

Leaflets for schools and parents: Dyslexia and ADHD (undergraduate assignment).

In 2018, a new, mid-term assignment has been introduced to the undergraduate module in Educational Psychology at the University of Southampton.  We asked our third year students to create information leaflets for schools and parents on the topic of either dyslexia or ADHD.

We are delighted to present the top three scoring pieces of work here:

Jemma Johnston (ADHD)
Amy Peters (Dyslexia)
Olivia Sutherland (Dyslexia)
