You’re invited to the 3rd annual Psych Summer Pool Party!!! No, unfortunately we don’t have an actual full sized pool hidden in the depths of the PAS, but we will have water and non-water games, music, pizza, a “cold treat,” and lots of fun!

The party will be on July 11th from 2:30-4 on the patio at the South entrance to the PAS (near the elevator).

The All-Or-Nothing Marriage

Major historical shifts in the institution of marriage in America have produced two major consequences. First, the quality of average marriages has weakened over time. Second, the quality of the best marriages has strengthened over time. In tandem, these two consequences have pushed marriage toward an all-or-nothing state.

Mental health difficulties touch the lives of many​, yet finding the right sources for help is not always easy. The University of Waterloo’s Centre for Mental Health Research (CMHR) is planning three public outreach talks that will provide clear, useful, and practical information to anyone interested in learning more about mental health. In partnership with Waterloo Public Libraries, the talks will be presented on three Sunday afternoons in February at the main library branch.

Kurt Gray investigates the mysterious inner lives of animals, machines, and human beings. His research finds that minds are a matter of perception—how else can we make sense of people treating their cats like humans, and treating homeless people like objects?
