McMillen Health Lecture Series: Bullying & Ostracism

  • June 19, 2014 at 8:30am until 3:00pm

Location: IPFW International Ballroom

McMillen Health Lecture Series in partnership with Great KIDS Make Great COMMUNITIES Presents:

Bullying and Ostracism

This day-long seminar in the International Ballroom at IPFW will feature keynote speaker Dr. Kipling Williams, Professor of Psychological Sciences at Purdue University.

Dr. William’s extensive work on ostracism - being ignored and excluded - and how it affects individuals and groups led him to develop the computer game "Cyberball" to help people explore how it feels to be left out of a group. His research is featured in the documentary film "Reject" which will be screened during this event.

The lecture series will also feature multiple breakout sessions, led by local experts. A boxed lunch is included, and free parking is available.

Continuing Education Units are available for those holding LCSW, LMHC, LMFT, and LSW licenses.  All others - please check with your licensing body.
