The Portland State University's Geospatial Information Society will be hosting our first colloquium of the year in this Friday, Oct.18, 3:00 to 4:00 PM in Cramer Hall room 413. Our speaker will be Dr. Greg Townley, a PSU Psychology professor specializing in community psychology, with particular interests in community integration of individuals with psychiatric disabilities; supported housing interventions and homelessness; and the relationship between culture, sense of community, and well-being. Dr. Townley utilizes a variety of social-environmental research methods in his place-based research, including Geographic Information Systems (GIS), neighborhood assessments, and qualitative/ ethnographic approaches. He also collaborates with local and international partners to implement and evaluate interventions addressing homelessness, supported housing, and mental health service delivery.
