I offer a university Practioner-in-Residence program to help students prepare for careers in psychology, to show how psychology is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) discipline, and to increase visibility of psychology clubs, psychology departments, and psychology honor societies on campus.
My programs are applicable, educational, entertaining, useful and a ton-of-fun. They would be a great way to celebrate the end of this academic year or the beginning of next.
Please email me (DrRonShapiro1981@SigmaXi.Net) for additional information.
