Department of Psychology at the University of Manitoba (Winnipeg)-Our research team is currently looking to recruit for a study on motherhood and depression- the goal of this study is to examine vulnerabilities to depression in mothers in the postpartum period compared to nonpostpartum major depression.  Currently, we are seeking participants for the nonpostpartum group.  Specifically, we are hoping to recruit mothers who have at least one child and who may be depressed.

More information about the study can be found at this link:

The third annual McMaster Symposium on Education & Cognition will take place on August 13-14, 2015 at McMaster University.  The symposium aims to bring together educators, researchers and policy makers to explore how cognitive principles can inform instructional design and critical issues in education.  In previous years, we have been fortunate to host an outstanding lineup of speakers recognized as leaders in the field.

Continuing this tradition, we are pleased to announce this year’s lineup of speakers including: Regan Gurung (Wisc-Green Bay), Geoff Norman (McMaster), Dan Smilek (Waterloo), Jennifer McCabe (Goucher), Marc Joanisse (Western) and Katherine Georgiades (McMaster).  Workshops include Presentation by Design, Writing Effective Multiple Choice Questions and Knowledge Translation: Drawing Attention to Your Research.

Thanks to the generous support of several campus partners, the earlybird registration fee (before July 15, 2015) for the conference which includes opening reception, breakfast, hot lunch, and refreshments will be $55 (general) and $35 (students).  Registration, accommodations, speaker profiles, and poster abstract submissions can be found at www.edcogmcmaster.ca.

You are invited and encouraged to participate in a survey designed to find out what happens to Psychology graduates in the years and decades after graduation, and to answer a host of additional questions:

  • How many people graduate each year in Canada with a master's or doctoral degree in psychology?
  • What is the job market like for a psychology graduate?
  • Are there enough jobs for psychology graduates?
  • How many psychologists are working in Canada?
  • How many psychologists do we need to meet the teaching, research, and service needs of Canadians?

The survey is being conducted by the CPA. So far, it has been completed by lots of individuals who have graduated from a clinical program, but what is missing is information from people who graduated from experimental/research-focused programs. Please help fix this information vacuum. Complete this survey yourself, and please forward the survey to all of your former graduates, where ever they may be today.

COMPLETE THE SURVEY BY CLICKING HERE!  This appeal applies to EVERYONE who has EVER completed a MASTER'S or DOCTORAL degree in ANY AREA of psychology in Canada. You don't have to be a registered psychologist; you don't have to work in a psychology related area; you can be unemployed, retired, at home or on parental leave. As long as you have completed a graduate degree in psychology, you are eligible to complete the survey.
