Communications

Our Communications Team works diligently to promote evidence-based psychological research to the media and wider audiences.

Working with the media

Working with the media can bring personal benefits for psychologists and benefit the profession as a whole.

Benefits for psychology include promoting the profession, increasing public understanding of psychology and attracting more young people to study the subject.

Personal benefits include:

  • Encouraging public interest in your work
  • Building your reputation as a good researcher or practitioner, and as a good communicator
  • Bringing your work to the notice of other professionals
  • Attracting future funding for your research
  • Obtaining feedback - you can be on the radio in minutes and in print the next day
  • Having fun - interacting with the media can be enjoyable

If you are interested in working with the media and joining our database of media-friendly experts, please contact the Communications Team.
