The Role of Disgust in Psychopathology Examined At the First Annual Psi Chi Alumni Colloquium

Posted February 20, 2009

psichilogo420.gif“Beyond Anxiety and Depression: Examining the Role of Disgust in Psychopathology” was the title of an April 23 lecture from Michael Hickey ’03, a doctoral candidate at Hofstra University. The talk, which took place at the Downes Hall of Fame, marked the First Annual Psi Chi Alumni Colloquium at Western New England College.

Financial support for the Colloquium was provided by a grant from the Alumni Association and the College’s chapter of Psi Chi, the National Honor Society in Psychology. A reception preceded the presentation.

As an undergraduate, Hickey was a recipient of an Alpha Lambda Delta national scholarship—the first Western New England College student to be chosen for the honor.
