Past Event. Access a recording of these talks via YouTube.

Join us on November 30 as graduate students in The University of Akron's History of Psychology course present two talks based on their research in the Archives of the History of American Psychology.

Montana Drawbaugh and Hannah LaMack will present on the life and work of Erika Fromm, a pioneer in psychotherapy and hypnosis, who escaped Nazi Germany in the 1930s and became a central figure in American Psychology in the postwar years.

Sianne Alexis, Auriel Jasper-Morris, and Audrey Tesi will be sharing a history of the Black Student Psychological Association, founded in the midst of the Civil Rights movement to promote training, education, and representation of Black psychologists and to represent the needs and voices of Black communities.

Students, educators, and community members are welcome to attend this free event or tune in via livestream. Talks begin promptly at 10:00 AM.
