27-APR-2019: Department of Psychology releases newsletter
Aligarh, April 27: The Psychological Society of the department of Psychology, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) has published its first newsletter, 'DePsyPher' carrying informative articles on research findings, reviews of books on psychological problems, overviews of psychological disorders, science and practice of psychology and how psychology influences society at large.
The newsletter was released by Prof Purnima Singh (Chairperson, department of humanities and social sciences, IIT New Delhi) in an extension lecture programme.

"Optimistically, this newsletter will captivate the readers with its trailblazing and veristic style and it will firmly encapsulate the important affairs which have been overlooked in the deluge of everyday information," said Prof Akbar Husain, Dean, Faculty of Social Science.
Prof Roomana Siddiqui (Chairperson, department of psychology and patron of the editorial team) pointed out that DePsyPher is a humble attempt to reach out to the common man with the objective of spreading awareness.
A major highlight of the newsletter is the book review section.
