ANNUAL CONFERENCE

MANCHESTER 2015

The 2015 Conference, to be held jointly with the Developmental Psychology Section, will take place in Manchester on 9-11 September. Programme is now live.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2015

The Social Psychology Section is part of the British Psychological Society (BPS), which is a non-profit-making educational and professional organisation for psychologists in the UK.

The Social Psychology Section was founded in 1953 and is now a thriving community of social psychologists.

As a section of the British Psychological Society (BPS), it receives financial support from the Society and it is represented on major BPS committees and at BPS conferences.

In the current socio-political context of education and research fundings cuts, where disciplines compete for the recognition of their societal and academic value, it is more important than ever that social psychology has a strong and distinctive voice

The Social Psychology Section aims to:

  • encourage and promote social psychological research
  • facilitate contact and communication between social psychologists
  • represent the interests of UK social psychologists within the British Psychological Society and more widely,
  • impact positively upon social psychology globally
  • support activities such as workshops and conferences
  • publish a referereed journal, the Social Psychological Review

The section is run by an elected committee. We always welcome any additional help from members.

Achieving our Aims

The Social Psychological section aims to meet the objectives through the following activities:

  • an Annual Social Psychology section conference
  • supporting seminars, workshops, and other conferences organised by members of the section
  • offering pump priming funds for such events
  • establishing awards for a recent PhD, Mid-Career, and Distinguised Contribution to Social Psychology
  • supporting policy relevant meetings with government and non-government organisations
  • responding to consultation documents and/or initiatives relevant to the development of social psychology; for example, the ESRC Psychology Bench marking Exercise and Nomination of REF Panel Members.
