The world is going through a period of rapid change and now, more than ever, individuals, families and communities are connecting in new ways. These connections, often supported by digital technologies, offer exciting opportunities not only for how we interact within our families and communities but how we might come together within and across group lines. 

Drawing on this theme, we are delighted to announce a free online one-day event in place of our 2020 Social Psychology Section Annual Conference. This event showcases cutting-edge research in social psychology that has practical and policy implications for how we can connect individuals, families and communities in changing and challenging times. 

The day is structured in two parts; each with a panel session and a keynote address from one of our 2020 Award Winners. The first part of the day will focus on the theme of ‘families, relationships and identities in a digital age’ (Session 1) and the second part of the day on ‘helping within and across group lines’ (Session 2). We will then end the day with our Annual General Meeting (AGM).

You are welcome to attend for all or only part of the day. Once registered you will be sent separate Zoom links to attend Session 1, Session 2 and the AGM within 24hrs of the event.

While we advocate and encourage attendance at our live webinar/online events to receive the complete experience, we also understand that circumstances happen that mean delegates can no longer attend. This event will be recorded and delegates registered for the event will receive the recording within 10 working days of the event. The recording is for personal use of the registered delegate only and must not be shared. Please understand that in some cases speakers do not give permission to be recorded and this is outside of our control.
