Virtual Talks with Psychology experts for Year 12

Year 12 Sociology and Psychology have enjoyed some virtual talks with experts in their fields this week.  On Wednesday, Professor Esther Dermott, Head of School for Policy Studies at the University of Bristol, gave the sociologists a fascinating overview of her career path and some highlights of her research, including investigating the experience of fatherhood as a refugee and the role of technology in familial relationships.  Then on Thursday, Dr Sophie Milward, Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Portsmouth and a former Rugby High School pupil, treated the psychologists to an insight into the world of being a Child and Developmental Psychologist, where the students particularly enjoyed seeing videos of Dr Milward’s research with great apes.
