The #metoo movement: we need to take care of each other

This is another one of those posts that I never expected to write. But I woke up this morning with a sense of urgency that this message needed to be shared. So here it is.

Dear Anxiety….

How to write and deliver effective oral presentations

Hello! Today I am back to my conference series for my first post of 2018. Last year was a really great year with HealthPsychTam and I want to take this opportunity to say a massive Thank You for the phenomenal support and feedback I received during 2017. I am excited for things to come and just hope that the final year of my PhD will allow me some time to pursue the ideas I have!   For now though, it’s time for the final post in my conference series. So far I’ve written a post to help with the decision…
