15:00 - Colloquium - An evaluation of the cognitive-behavioural theory of bulimia nervosa More Information
Cognitive-behavioural therapy is the treatment of choice for bulimia nervosa, yet only 30 to 50% of patients experience remission of binge eating and purging following treatment. Understanding the processes that maintain this disorder may prove a useful step forward in developing more effective (...)

15:00 - SEMINAR - The role of youth, families and schools in community disaster preparedness and prevention More Information
Until recently, the predominant focus of research in relation to children and disasters has been on children’s vulnerability and reactions to disasters during the Response and Recovery phases. Research focused on children’s preparation for hazardous events has a much shorter history. This (...)

15:00 - SEMINAR - Adapting to Living with Bushfire and Earthquake Hazards: Integrating household, community and societal influences : This seminar discusses empirical findings regarding why people decide to prepare or decide not to prepare. More Information
Despite the efforts and resources committed to encouraging people to prepare, levels of readiness remain low. Neither living in high risk areas nor providing people with information about risk and preparedness ensures that people prepare. This presentation argues that it is not information per se (...)
Friday 09
15:00 - Colloquium - Extraversion and Reward Reactivity More Information
Extraversion is a personality trait describing a broad tendency towards sociability, activity, boldness, and positive affect. Many biologically-oriented personality theorists have suggested that a reactive reward system underlies many of the key features of extraversion (e.g., Depue & Collins (...)

12:00 - SYMPOSIUM - Neural, perceptual and cognitive mechanisms involved in recognising other-race and other-age faces Website | More Information
It is well-established that people are better able to recognise faces of their own ethnicity than of an unfamiliar ethnicity. This is often known as the other-race effect (ORE). A similar effect has been found for age where we are better able to recognise individuals from our own age group than (...)
Friday 16
15:00 - Colloquium - Different attentional blink tasks reflect distinct information processing limitations: An individual differences approach More Information
To study the temporal dynamics and capacity-limits of attentional selection and encoding researchers often employ the attentional blink (AB) phenomenon: subjects’ impaired ability to report the second of two targets in a rapid serial visual presentation (RSVP) stream they appear within 200-500ms of (...)

15:30 - Colloquium - Why Psychology should be at the heart of good public policy and what happens when it is not More Information
Psychology should be at the heart of good public policy – but often it is not. Many policy makers assume they know, because they are human and live in society, all they need to know about human behaviour. Or they assume that economic theory will provide all the critical insights necessary to (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents: : “Losing Our Endemic Sense of Place: Solastalgia in South West Western Australia.” Website | More Information
  We are living in a period of ecocultural disintegration. The complexity and diversity of culture and ecology (ecocultural diversity) is being removed and/or homogenised by powerful forces all tied to modernity, global development and now, climate change. In some respects we are now all in the (...)
Friday 30
15:00 - SEMINAR - Exploring elements of an effective disaster recovery process: Lessons from recent New Zealand events More Information
Effective recovery from disasters depends not just on the physical impacts of the event but also on how the societal environment supports the complex and protracted processes of recovery. Research highlights the importance of not only strong local government capacity, but also of a cohesive system (...)

15:00 - Colloquium - Towards a climate change scenario that is ecologically sustainable, fair, and welfare-increasing More Information
To resolve the climate change dilemma, many believe that a global emissions protocol must be negotiated with the aim of stabilising greenhouse gases at no more than 450 parts-per-million (ppm) of CO2-equivalent. But more is required than this to deal with climate change and to promote the broader (...)

9:00 - COURSE - Introduction to Structural Equation Modelling using AMOS : A Short Course Website | More Information
The course is designed as an introductory, applied course in the use of SEM using the Amos18 program. SEM is used widely by researchers to find and test complex relationships amongst observed (measured) variables and latent (unobserved) variables and amongst the latent variables themselves. SEM (...)

12:00 - TALK - Evidence for Selection in the Evolution of Human Communication Systems : Human communication systems evolve and socio-­cultural processes play an important role in this process More Information
Human communication systems evolve and socio-­cultural processes play an important role in this process. The cultural mechanisms that guide this evolution are not well understood. Using a laboratory study that is extended by computer simulations, we test three mechanisms through which human (...)

The coastal strip of Israel is densely populated and suffers from all the common drawbacks of densely populated areas: air, soil and groundwater pollution; high land prices; chronic traffic congestions; urban violence, etc. The Negev covers sixty per cent of Israel’s surface but is home to less (...)
