The Psychology of Emotions with Dr. John Grych – 7-19-14
July 19, 2014
This week we explore emotions from the perspective of the science behind emotions. Where do they come from, and what part of our emotional experience is hard-wired versus learned behavior? It’s a topic that has been studied in psychology for centuries, and we look at this history to inform our ongoing discussion of the topic.
Guiding our discussion will be Dr. John Grych, Chair of the Department of Psychology at Marquette University. At the undergraduate level, Dr. Grych teaches Psychology of Marriage and Family, Introduction to Psychology, and Child Psychopathology. At the graduate level, he teaches courses on child psychopathology, models of psychotherapy, and couples/family therapy, and supervises clinical practica. He also has published work on children’s perceptions of interparental conflict and aggression, family processes related to child psychopathology, and interventions for children from conflictual and violent families.
Dr. Grych received his Ph.D. at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1991. You can learn more about Dr. Grych at www.marquette.edu.
