Dr. Lemieux to Give Keynote Address at 2018 Annual Meeting of the GPA
GSI Director Anthony Lemieux will provide the keynote address, “Bringing Psychology and a Global Perspective to Bear on Terrorism and Violence,” at the annual Georgia Psychological Association meeting this weekend, April 13 through 15. The association heralds Dr. Lemieux in his work at Georgia State University and with several interdisciplinary avenues, including the Department of Defense Minerva Initiative.
“As psychologists,” GPA notes in their bio of Dr. Lemieux, “we need to work collaboratively across boundaries and communicate effectively about our work to multiple audiences and stakeholders. Psychologists possess key skills needed in interpreting and interacting with complex problems. In particular, [Dr. Lemieux] focuses on psychological, communicative, and behavioral aspects of factors that influence people to mobilize toward violent action. Dr. Lemieux will highlight research that is both interdisciplinary and collaborative, and draws on advances that have potential to make our science and our work that much more impactful. The kinds of large-scale, interdisciplinary challenges that we face – in terms of topic, methods, and necessary areas of expertise – require that psychologists cut across disciplinary silos so that we can tackle problems from multiple perspectives.”
