Klee Forum Honors Research

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

The Department of Psychology will host a Jim Klee Forum on psychedelic research on Thursday, March 26, at 7 p.m. in the Campus Center Ballroom. A reception begins at 6:30 p.m. in the atrium.

Keynote speaker Rick Doblin, founder and president of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, will present “21st Century Psychedelic Research: A Renaissance in Science, Psychotherapy, Mysticism and Politics.”

Doblin earned his doctorate at the Harvard Kennedy School of Public Policy and has been instrumental in obtaining FDA approval for these studies.

The Jim Klee Forum has become a treasured tradition at UWG. In 1971, Jim Klee joined the faculty of the new Humanistic Psychology program at UWG. He is credited with helping the program grow to its current prominence as a principal center for studies and research in humanistic and transpersonal psychology. Klee was named professor emeritus of psychology after he retired in 1987. He died in 1996.

The department offers many programs through the doctorate level. For more information, visit the department’s website or call 678-839-6510.
