Tony Cassidy, Professor of Child and Family Health Psychology, presents as part of the Civic Lecture Series his Inaugural Professorial Lecture
This lecture will be built around three main themes, the changing face of Higher Education, Leadership, and Positive Psychology. It will draw on Tony’s experience and his research over 30 years in academia. He will talk about the issues around widening access to higher education; values implicit and explicit in higher education; leadership and its impact; and why we need to apply positive psychology to academic life as well as to our practice. Throughout he will talk about children and young people; their strengths and vulnerabilities; and why prevention is the key to healthy futures.
This event is open to everyone.
