The psychology of ageing discussed at public lecture


Tuesday, 28 Apr 2015

Dr Judith Gullifer_250x150Charles Sturt University (CSU) Lecturer in psychology Dr Judith Gullifer will deliver a free public lecture at CSU in Orange on Friday 1 May 2015 which will discuss the psychology of ageing. 'Recent developments in the psychology of ageing' is part of the University's Explorations Series and will be held in building 1004, room 120 from 6 pm to 7pm. Dr Gullifer is a Lecturer at CSU's School of Psychology and will discuss results from a research project she completed in late 2014. "With the Australian population aged over 65 expected to double within the next 30 years, increased life expectancy and many government resources being poured into helping our aging population it is important for us to understand how ageing is perceived in society and the experience of older people," Dr Gullifer said. "The ageing population also applies to regional Australia, however Orange itself is slightly unique. The strong mining industry seems to have drawn families with younger children to the area and in 2011 the proportion of pre-schoolers was higher than the proportion of persons at post retirement age." Dr Judith Gullifer is a registered psychologist with a background in professional counselling in rural and remote Australia. She also holds various positions with the Australian Psychological Society. For more information about the public lecture please visit http://news.csu.edu.au/events
