Paul Frick, university research professor of psychology and chair of the Department of Psychology at the University of New Orleans, will discuss understanding and treating antisocial youths with College of Education students, faculty and staff Feb. 9 as part of the college’s Research Wednesdays Speaker Series.
Frick has published over 155 manuscripts in either edited books or peer-reviewed publications and has authored six additional books and test manuals. His research focuses on understanding the different pathways through which youth develop severe antisocial behavior and aggression and the implications of this research for assessment and treatment. His work has been funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, and the John T. and Catherine D. MacArthur Foundation. Frick also serves as the editor of the Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, the official journal of Division 53 of the American Psychological Association and the president of the Society for the Scientific Study of Psychopathy.
The Research Wednesdays Speaker Series is designed to fulfill three goals: to provide a platform for explorations of new ways of conducting and disseminating educational research, to discuss new methods of mentoring doctoral students in an effort to enhance their development as researchers, and to fill a professional development need by providing access to cutting edge researchers at the state and national levels.
Research Wednesdays is held Wednesdays at 12 noon in the COE Forum, Room 1030. A list of upcoming speakers is available to the general public on the COE website. Speaker presentations are also available for download at iTunes U.
A light lunch will be provided for those who confirm their attendance to Erin Whitney in the COE’s Educational Research Bureau at (404) 413-8090 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
