Theme – Imaginology
The theme for this newsletter is Imaginology, the study of the imagination. This is such an important topic for the risk industry because so much of strategy, planning and tackling risk is about what can be imagined to happen. Such is the nature of a risk assessment. It’s so common to hear when something goes wrong the comment: ‘I had no idea that could happen’ or ‘I couldn’t imagine that could go wrong’.
However, before we jump into this theme just some news of return to face to face workshops in Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Perth and London.
If you are new to The Social Psychology of Risk (SPoR) or an old hand needing a refresher, maybe one of these workshops is just what you need.
|Face to Face Workshops: Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Perth and London|
Melbourne and Adelaide July 2022
Here is an opportunity for people learn about SPoR in Melbourne and Adelaide, face-to-face.
Now that Dr Long is semi-retired he has passed on work in SPoR in Victoria to Andrew Thornhill (Andrew@irmsystems.com.au) and in South Australia and Northern Territory to Matt Thorne (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Both Andrew and Matt have studied more than 20 modules in SPoR with Dr Long over the past 10 years and are Masters in SPoR. Andrew and Matt are currently delivering work in SPoR in Building, Construction and Mining.
Matt and Andrew are proposing 2 workshops:
• 26 July 2022 in Melbourne and,
• 28 July 2022 in Adelaide
You can download the flyer, information on content, speakers and register here: https://www.humandymensions.com/product/spor/
The cost for each module is $500.
These workshops are introductory and so are suitable for anyone wishing to find out more about human judgment and decision making, why people do what they do and what can be done to better tackle risk using the methodology and methods of SPoR.
