Crossing the social divide

Run time: 11:00 – 12:00

Social tribes are important, and often we stick with what we know. But research has shown that positive interactions with members of different groups can change the way we think about the world. 

To navigate the diverse environment in which we live, it is important to develop skills and beliefs that will enable positive cross-group relationships. 
Join Rhiannon Turner from Queen’s University Belfast for her Presidential address for Psychology which will explore the many benefits of stepping outside your comfort zone and how it can boost academic achievement, problem solving, creativity, wellbeing, and environmental behaviours.
