Our students have made incredible progress since they started at the beginning of the year and we’re all really looking forward to seeing how their projects come together between now and October.

Back to back conferences on opposite sides of the world who thought that would be a good idea? Anna (Klas) and I apparently. We left America for New Zealand, and yep you guessed it another conference. This time it was ASBHM in Christchurch. I knew that this one would be a whole lot smaller than the previous, and it was a nice change of pace. As with SPSP I like certain areas of health psychology but not that into it where I had to make difficult decisions about what I wanted to see in competing streams.

I recently ventured to Portland, Oregon for the annual SPSP conference. Before I start, I just want to put a disclaimer on this. I had what appears to be a very different experience to other people at SPSP than what can be found along the grapevine of academic conversation. I’m sure if you asked Anna who was also there to write something with the same heading as this it would look completely different.
