Consciousness and Experiential Psychology Section

The Consciousness and Experiential Psychology Section was formed in 1997 as the first network of a nationally representative body of professional psychologists devoted to the study of Consciousness in the modern era.

Consciousness was the original focus of psychological research and is once more a central topic of inquiry.

The primary purpose of the Consciousness and Experiential Psychology Section is to advance our understanding of consciousness, to bring scientific research on consciousness closer to other traditions of inquiry into the nature of mind and to explore how this research can be used to improve the quality of life.

Our main areas of interest include:

  • Consciousness studies
  • Phenomenological psychology
  • Psychology of well-being
  • Cultural and ecological perspectives

We post details of events and activities on this webpage, on our CEP Facebook and Twitter pages, and on the main BPS events list.
