TRIGGER WARNING: Sucide. Our discussion of trauma will include sucide as a topic

If the sum of our experiences make us who we are, then how does trauma affect us ? And does it affect us all in the same way? Join us for a night delving into the human psyche and the science behind identifying and managing mental trauma.

TRIGGER WARNING: SUICIDE Understanding Suicidal Behaviour

Prof. Rory O'Connor (Chair in Health Psychology, University of Glasgow)
Suicide and self-harm are major public health concerns: indeed, suicide is the leading cause of death of men in mid-life. Prof. O’Connor will explore the complex set of factors that lead to suicidal thinking and behaviour. He will focus on the psychology of suicide and aim to challenge some of the myths surrounding it.

Occupational Trauma and Identity

Dr. Kevin Wilson-Smith (Senior Lecturer (School of Psychology), University of Glasgow)
Occupational identity forms are defined as our identities at work. What happens when we experience trauma in the workplace ? And how does that impact our occupational identity and who are in general? Military psychologist and academic Dr Kevin Wilson-Smith will explore a number of case studies of work related trauma and its impact on identity. It will draw on military example of returning from war and healthcare examples of traumatic loss of life how individuals to cope with the impact of trauma.
