On Wednesday 22 April, staff from the Division of Psychology in the School of Social Sciences came together to celebrate the launch of their book – Essential Psychology – which was co-edited and authored by staff within the division.

The book launch provided an excellent opportunity for staff to mark the successes of the past few months and recognise the organisational feat that went into producing a work co-authored by over fifty members of academic staff.

The event took place in Boots Library, where staff were treated to bucks fizz and canapés. Awards were presented for a range of achievements including, the fastest response to a contribution request (Dr. Mark Griffiths) and the strongest stand on principle to resist the editors (Dr Antonio Castro).

Phil Banyard, organiser of the Book Launch and one of the editors of Essential Psychology said: "The event was an acknowledgement of the achievements of the Psychology Division this year and of the way the academic team worked together to produce this introductory text. To toast the success of the division, glasses of Buck's Fizz (cocktail) were provided, which added an extra sparkle to the event."
