The 2017-2018 WVC Speaks Lecture Series presents “What are we thinking?: Applications of the science of psychology to understand and improve our thinking and behavior” by WVC faculty member Dr. J’Lene George. The lecture is Thursday, May 17 at 2 p.m. in Wenatchi Hall room 2105 and room 901 in Omak, via ITV. It is free and open to the public.

This talk will discuss some of the ways the human mind helps us be our best, but also some of the ways the mind can mislead or trick people. Dr. George writes, “We will apply the science of psychology to help us think a little better, or at least have a little more compassion, perspective, and perhaps even a reasonable answer when things go wrong.”

Dr. George has taught psychology courses at WVC since 2008.  She loved psychology as a kid and that passion blossomed when she took general psychology at the University of Utah to fill a graduation requirement. Now, a Ph.D. in applied developmental psychology from the University of Miami allows her to have a career doing what she loves – studying, teaching and applying the concepts of psychology to foster growth, learning and understanding.
