Presented by Dr Annelie Harvey, Dr Daragh McDermott, Dr Mick Finlay, Dr Magdalena Zawisza, Ms Aneita Pringle


Join our team of social psychologists as they discuss the extremes of human nature from #WomenWhoVoteTrump, cross-cultural #homoprejudice, the derogation of the McCann’s, social influence in mass suicides, to the use of restraints in mental health.


Dr Zawisza will discuss extreme forms of sexism cross-culturally including the paradox of Trump’s presidency and #WomenWhoVoteTrump.


Dr McDermott will explore the extreme differences in global attitudes towards sexual and gender minorities in 2018.


Dr Harvey will analyse how people can have extreme polar opposite reactions to instances of injustice such as that of the McCann case.


Dr Finlay will examine how the leader of the People’s Temple, Reverend Jim Jones, talked about death to his followers in the lead up to the mass murder/suicide.


Aneita Pringle will consider the use and appropriateness of utilising constraints in mental health.
