Dr. Carla Edwards, professor of psychology at Northwest Missouri State University, presented a workshop Oct. 17 at the Peace and Justice Studies Association annual conference in San Diego.

Her workshop, titled “Peace and Justice as Class Room Pedagogy across the Curriculum in Higher Education,” described ways higher education instructors can utilize classroom structure to introduce peace and justice strategies into the classroom culture.

Edwards’ presentation also included a discussion about the use of motivational interviewing and stages of change as psychological principles to facilitate building a classroom culture based on diverse and just work groups.

Edwards joined the Northwest faculty in 1997 and is a licensed psychologist. In addition to teaches courses in the University’s Department of Behavioral Sciences, she advises the Social Sciences Research Group.
