On Tuesday 27 November, 67 d’Overbroeck’s Psychology students attended the “Power of the Mind Conference” held at the University of Warwick.
During the day we heard from a number of speakers about issues such as neuroplasticity and therapies for treating phobias. d’Overbroeck’s Head of Psychology, Kelly Bristow, gave a session to the conference on exam success which was very well received
The final speaker was a hypnotist who debunked hypnotism in the traditional sense, yet still managed to make some students entertain us on stage, merely through the power of suggestion, conformity and obedience. Two of our students, Rishi and Nastia, went on stage but neither took to the hypnosis so soon got sent off !
