Upcoming Be Inspired! Lecture

The Eleanor Glanville Centre’s next Be Inspired! Lecture will take place on Tuesday 22nd May and will be presented by Professor Kerstin Meints from the School of Psychology.

 ‘Research with children and animals – from assessment to impact’

 Abstract:

This lecture will showcase the fruitfulness of moving between basic and applied research. In particular, I will discuss how research in child development and human-animal interaction can lead to the creation of assessment tools, interventions and impact. This lecture will focus on children’s development of categorisation and language and early assessment tools as well as on human-animal interaction and methods and tools to improve safe and beneficial interactions.
