at the EPCC Spring 2016 4th Annual Psychology Career Day.
“Every year I tell the students, and this really comes from Arvis Jones, it’s not about you directing, it’s about letting the students do what they’re interested in.
They really are the ones directing us on what we are going to learn this semester,” Jennifer Rosales, Psychology Instructor and Club Advisor, said.
The psychology club at Valle Verde welcomes anyone who is interested in the field of psychology or human behavior to come join.
Meetings will be held on a bi-weekly basis usually around 12 p.m.
“Anyone welcome! Come on over and learn about psychology,” Rosales said.
The club mainly focuses on clinical and research psychology topics however, they welcome other psychology topic students would like to learn about.
Club members participated in previous field trips to view the new DSM-5, a diagnostic manual used by many professionals in the field, watched psychological films and attended seminars.
“This semester the club seems to be taking an interest in child and adolescent psychology,” Rosales said.
This club focuses heavily on group work, voicing your opinion and fundraisers.
Staying involved during the semester is a must. If you are into student government, the club does have officer positions that are available.
On Nov. 4, the Psychology Club will be hosting its 5th annual career day from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Everyone is welcome, club member or not, just make sure to RSVP prior to the date as breakfast will be provided. Psychology and related field professionals come together to speak about their career.
Plan to see forensic psychologists, psychiatrists, licensed counselors, speech therapists and more!
