About the Event

Manipulation and bullying are serious issues in many areas of public and private life – from cyberbullying of school children to abusive relationships. These can have damaging impacts on individuals, relationships, school, work and social life. Applying ideas from psychology, this intriguing talk by The Open University’s Dr Karen Hagan will look at manipulative strategies used by President Trump in news conferences, interviews and on Twitter, and why these can be successful in particular contexts. Understanding this can reveal counterstrategies to discourage and resist bullying across all spheres. Come along to listen and ask any questions you may have on this fascinating subject!

This event will be delivered by Dr Karen Hagan,  Senior Lecturer (Ireland), Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences and School of Psychology.

Suitable for all ages.
