On January 25 and 26, 2008, Claremont Graduate University will be hosting a two-day course on the Psychology of Stress, open to the public. Dr. Norbert K. Semmer will be teaching the course in the Stauffer Hall of Learning on campus.
Dr. Semmer is a professor of the Psychology of Work and Organizations at the University of Bern in Switzerland. His main areas of research interest include learning and strategy development, training and feedback, efficiency, quality, errors and safety, and, stress at work. In reference to stress at work, Dr. Semmer is particularly interested in its assessment and its relationship to health, well-being, and performance. He has participated in a number of research projects, including an ongoing project entitled Work experience and quality of life in Switzerland: Work, stress, and personality development.
This will be an excellent opportunity to learn from a leader in this field that cuts across Social Psychology and Organizational Behavior, and which touches all of our day-to-day lives. The two days will involve a mixture of lecturing, discussions, and practical exercises centered around the subject.
