Dr. James Maddux, Professor Emeritus with Mason's Department of Psychology, has been asked to give an Invited Address at the 2015 APA Convention in Toronto this August. Maddux, a member of the clinical psychology program, recently accepted an invitation to speak from Dr. Jonathan Adler, Program Director for APA Division 8 (Society for Personality and Social Psychology).
"I am flattered and delighted by the invitation," says Maddux, who spent part of last year travelling in Europe and has recently been awarded a Fulbright Grant to work with psychology program directors for Klaipeda University in Lithuania.
Adler reached out to Maddux for his work on building a connection between basic understandings of social psychology and their applications in clinical psychology. Maddux plans to present a talk titled "The Social Psychology of Clinical Perception and Judgment: The Inconvenient Truth."
