Are you curious to see how the insane lived in the 16th century? Are you interested in psychiatry through the ages? Are you yourself even normal? Get tangled in the miracles of the psyche of us humans and experience the thin line between normal and insane at the Dolhuys!
On the 2nd of May the Study Broadening and Career Committee is organizing a field trip to the Dolhuys. The Dolhuys is the museum of the mind, which is situated in Haarlem.

Show it off and bring your squad to the NEXT in Leiden on the 22nd of November, after all, who doesn’t love a ‘next’-level party!
Do you see different colors in your mind when you think of the days of the week? Do you taste something in your mouth when you hear a word? Do you think of a color when you hear a certain song on the radio? If your answer to one of these questions is ‘yes’, you might be one of the 2-4% of the population who have a form of synesthesia.
On the 23rd of November the Alumni Committee will organize the first activity of the year. It will be an interesting lecture on synesthesia in room 1A21 at the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences.

Tessa van Leeuwen, a neurobiologist, researcher and experience expert from Nijmegen. She is currently researching the subject of synesthesia in combination with autism spectrum disorder. She will be able to tell you much more about this subject.
You are welcome at 7:00 PM and the lecture will start at 7:30 PM. The lecture will approximately end at 9:00 PM. Afterwards you are welcome to have a drink at the Common Room on the second floor of the faculty.
Price: €2.50 for members and €4.50 for non-members. You can buy your tickets online or in the common room by card (SA55).

On the 22nd of February the Alumni Committee will organize the second activity of the year. It will be an interesting workshop on mindfulness in room 1A27 at the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences. The workshop will be given by Saake Buwalda. He is, together with his sister, the founder of the Bureau for Mindfulness. They have experienced that mindfulness is very useful for people who are in the age category of 18-35 years old. A lot of things are changing in this stage of life, for example in work, study, where you live and in relationships. Mindfulness is a good tool to handle these changes. Mindfulness is the awareness of your own physical experiences, feelings and thoughts. It comes down to learning to live more consciously and to deal with stress, thoughts and emotions differently. This is done through training, sometimes meditation and through certain attention exercises. Saake studied Work and Organizational Psychology and Eastern Philosophy in Amsterdam and is now a trainer.
Together with all Psychology Study Associations in the Netherlands, Stichting Studieverenigingen Psychologie Nederland (SSPN) has organised the National Psychology Congress on the 23rd of February.
