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.
