CEU WORKSHOP: USING DESIGN PSYCHOLOGY TO CREATE IDEAL PLACES
Presented by: Toby Israel, Ph.D.
Toby Israel, Ph.D. is the founder of Design Psychology, a new field that continues to gain international attention, including in the L.A., N.Y. and Financial Times, CBS Sunday Morning, NPR’s “Talk of the Nation,” and “Radio Times.” Trained as an Environmental Psychologist, she is a multi-disciplinary professional with experience in design, psychology, the arts and education who applies scholarship to the “real world” practice of design. Her groundbreaking approach is described in her book, Some Place Like Home: Using Design Psychology to Create Ideal Places.
Whether you are a designer, vendor, project manager, or architect, this seminar ‘Using Design Psychology to Create Ideal Places' will teach you how to discover the social and psychological components that will connect your client to their space. This hands-on workshop provides you with an exciting new method that can be used immediately to understand your client's past, present and future sense of place thus helping to ensure the creation of a deeply satisfying design.
