  • Public Lecture Series: The psychology of babies 4/2/2015 at 20:00
    Babies are entirely dependent on their parents. Their care and nurture during the first two years of their lives is a constant feature in the news and is considered critical in laying the foundations of a child’s mental adjustment by both politicians and health professionals alike. In this lecture, Professor Lynne Murray will examine how a child’s psychological development – their social understanding, attachments that they form, emotional control and even their intelligence – can be affected by different parenting techniques. The University of Reading’s Public Lecture Series is a showcase of research highlights from across the University. Established over forty years ago, these popular lectures are given by Reading academics eminent in their field and cover a wide range of topical subjects. Admission free, booking advisable. <a href="http://www.reading.ac.uk/news-and-events/about-event-register.aspx">Register to attend >>></a> Doors open at 19:15
