Brenau Psychology Department’s Annual Get PsychED! Event

The annual Psychology Department Get PsychED! event brings local high school students to Brenau for movie screenings on psychology topics followed by the students participating in a variety of activities that demonstrate various psychology-related concepts including an alcohol-impaired goggles obstacle course, virtual dementia tour, simple tasks while wearing inversion goggles, a neuroscience demonstration of brain motor commands, the “rubber hand” illusion, and the hearing voices experience.

Advanced Placement psychology students from local high schools converge on the Gainesville historic campus for a screening of films such as Experimenter: The Stanley Milgram Story, The Stanford Prison Experiment, or Temple Grandin.  The event started from ideas generated by the Brenau-Behavioral Analysis Club (B-BAC) led by Professor Perry Daughtry. The successful implementation of Get PsychED! can only be done through the efforts of the Brenau Admissions Department with active involvement from the Psychology Department faculty, students in the Clinical Counseling Master’s program, and the members of the Brenau Behavioral Analysis Club (B-BAC).
