Wrather Auditorium

Wrather West Kentucky Museum
Murray, KY 42071

The Dr. and Mrs. Gary Brummer Colloquium Series in Psychology is pleased to present Dr. Richard D. Harvey, Associate Professor of Psychology at St. Louis University. Dr. Harvey will be giving a colloquium talk entitled "Collective Identification: A Double-Edged Sword." Dr. Harvey received his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas and holds joint appointments in the Social Psychology and the Industrial/Organizational Psychology programs at St. Louis University. 

Abstract:  This talk presents both positive and negative aspects of group identification. While most research in this area has focused on the ways in which people attach themselves to groups, this talk also presents how people can be situated in opposition to a particular group. A novel, interdisciplinary approach to exploring group identity and identification will also be discussed. 

This presentation is free and open to the public. 1 hour of continuing education credit (free of charge) is available for professionals through the MSU Department of Psychology. The Murray State University Department of Psychology is approved by the Kentucky Psychological Association and/or Kentucky Board of Examiners of Psychology to offer continuing education for psychologists. The Murray State Psychology Department maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
