The Saddleback Psi Beta & Psychology Club and ASG are hosting the PsychTalks! Speaker Series. On Thursday, May 13, 2021 they will be hosting Emma Grisham, MA, PhD(C) for a talk titled, Sharing Ins't Always Caring: Social Sharing & Mental Health in the Context of Collective Trauma Situations. The talk will be held from 1 to 2 pm via Zoom.
After experiencing a stressful or traumatic event, people often share about their
experience with others. While discussing these experiences can be therapeutic for
the sharer, hearing about these events may be harmful for the listener. This talk
examines the mental health impact of exposure to accounts of collective
stressful and traumatic events.
