AEPS Upcoming Mental Health Symposium

The Applied Evolutionary Psychology Society (AEPS) is proud to announce our upcoming Mental Health Symposium, set to take place fromĀ 1pm-4pm on Tuesday, June 4th, 2019 at the NonProfit Center in Boston, Massachusetts.

The symposium will be targeted toward mental health practitioners (clinical & counseling psychologists, mental health counselors, social workers, psychiatrists, etc.) and will focus on specific, practical ways in which the evolutionary behavioral sciences can inform day-to-day mental health practice. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Stefan Hofmann of Boston University, a clinical psychologist specializing in anxiety disorders, who will give a talk entitled “Integrating Evolutionary Science into Clinical Practice.” AEPS is currently looking into the feasibility of offering CEU credits for clinicians.

The symposium is open to all, whether or not you’re a professional clinician, so any interested parties are encouraged to come! AEPS has some funds available to subsidize student travel expenses for graduate or undergraduate students who are interested in attending the symposium.
