Public lecture series

We have at least two Public Lectures a year, inviting prominent scientists to give a lecture for the scientifically interested public. We attract usually between 300 and 500 people. After the lecture there is also an opportunity for audience members to meet the speaker on the premises of the Science College at a reception organized by the students. The audience consists of students, academics and mainly interested members of the public.

Cultivating Resilience Across the Transition to Adulthood

Monday March 18th, 2024, 6:00 PM

Register here Loyola Jesuit Hall and Conference Centre, 7141 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest or Zoom    
Across the transition to adulthood, young people accumulate psychosocial strengths and resources that buffer stress and promote emotional well-being and success later in adulthood. In this talk, Dr. Barker discusses lifespan development and positive psychology theory and research on the development of resilience during this transitional phase of the life course.
Dr. Erin Barker is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology and member of the Centre for Research in Human Development at Concordia University, where she directs the Lifespan Well-Being Laboratory. She is a developmental scientist whose program of research examines patterns of emotional experience across developmental transitions. She is particularly interested in how stress and coping affect mental health and wellbeing during the transition to adulthood. Dr. Barker completed her graduate training at the Universities of Victoria and Alberta and postdoctoral fellowships at the National Institutes of Health and University of Wisconsin.
