September 25, 2018

How much change can you create to better the life of another person? That is the question speaker Caley Norton, director of Early Childhood Services at the Licking County Board of Developmental Disabilities, will answer during Introspect Psychology Club’s fall reception on Oct. 4.

Caley Norton received her degree in physical therapy from The Ohio State University. She has worked with children and their families across a variety of settings including homes, schools, communities and clinics. She will discuss her experiences working with children and their families when they face unexpected challenges.

The Introspect Psychology Club, an Ohio State Newark student organization, invites all students, faculty, staff and community members interested in the study of psychology to a reception featuring Norton’s talk titled, “Impacting Others – One Small Step at a Time.” The reception will be held in the John L. and Christine Warner Library and Student Center, room 126 (performance platform) from 4 to 5:30 p.m. The reception and talk are free and open to the public.

“This is an opportunity for students to see how an Ohio State degree can be used to help those in our local community,” said Jim Wirth, assistant professor of psychology.

Psychology is one of nine majors that can be completed entirely at Ohio State Newark. Areas of study include health, developmental, social, cognitive, applied and human experimental psychology.
