February IS Psychology Month!
This year, PAA celebrated Psychology Month virtually:
- Quick Facts highlighting interesting tidbits about the profession, including figures such as Sigmund Freud, locations such as Dalhousie University, techniques such as hypnosis, and fields such as forensic psychology.
- Videos from Alberta psychologists sharing how the profession became the right path for them.
- Biographies from Alberta psychologists sharing what first interested them in the field.
In February, Edmonton, St. Albert, and Strathcona County Public Libraries displayed information on mental health and psychology. The displays included information about PAA’s Referral Service and psychological concerns such as anxiety, depression, and substance use/abuse. Dr. Patrick Keelan, Public Education and Wellness Committee organized these events.
PAA’s psychological resource materials were provided and displayed at Grey Nuns Community Hospital for staff to access and at Bethel Lutheran Church, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, and St. Luke’s Anglican Church for families in need.
