February marks Psychology Month in British Columbia, and the BC Psychological Association (BCPA) is putting on 15 free public presentations throughout the Lower Mainland in the month of February to help raise awareness of the role psychology plays in our lives.

Presentation topics include:

  • Understanding and managing anxiety in children
