Psychology Seminar at Westminster to Discuss High Quality Relationships

Dr. Margaret Clark, professor of psychology at Carnegie Mellon University, will discuss high quality relationships at a Westminster College psychology colloquium Wednesday, Nov. 10, at 4:30 p.m. in Phillips Lecture Hall located in the Hoyt Science Resources Center.

 Clark has over 25 years of experience conducting research on communal relationships, which are relationships in which people benefit one another in response to needs, as those needs arise, and with no expectation of repayment.  Her research suggests that there is clear evidence that the capacity to create and maintain communal relationships is critical for psychological and physiological well-being.

 Clark is a the 1990-1991 recipient of the Berscheid-Hatfield Award for sustained excellence in research on relationships, and is currently the president-elect of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology and chair of the Society of Experimental Social Psychology.

 The event is free and open to the public.  For more information, contact Dr. Sherri Pataki, visiting assistant professor of psychology at Westminster College, at (724) 946-7361 or e-mail
