Join us for our December event, where we will explore how human aggression (HA) is characterised and understood by psychologists, with reference to contemporary examples.

A random leaf through a few daily newspapers over the past month will produce many references to what psychologists refer to as ‘human aggression’. Examples would include:

  • The killing of 59 innocents and the hospitalising of hundreds from the actions of a single American gunsman at a Las Vegas musical convention;
  • Anthony Joshua's impending 'fight' defending his boxing world titles;
  • Seemingly ever-increasing incidences of self-harm and suicide in our youngsters.

Clearly there is no 'one-glove-fits-all' explanation for the above, never mind all the other examples we can think of, but it is worth exploring what we do understand—and don’t.

At this talk and meetup we'll be joined by Paul Humphreys, a Chartered Psychologist and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. He has lectured at both the Open University and the University of Worcester, and is author or co-author of nine books in the field. 

This event is free to attend and guests are welcome—just secure your place using the link at the top of the page.
