Cyberpsychology Section

Cyberpsychology is a scientific inter-disciplinary domain that focuses on the psychological phenomena which emerge as a result of the human interaction with digital technology, particularly the Internet.

Cyberpsychology exists to pursue and formalise a scientific understanding of the impact, dynamic processes and outcomes that democratised digital technologies have enabled in individuals, groups and the wider society.

By investigating issues around gaming, social media, virtual reality, online learning and virtual interest groups, we hope to raise (and answer) questions about the motivations, subjective experiences, and impacts which result from the interactions between humanity and technology.

Our mission

Our mission is to:

  • initiate, organise and promote a range of activities and produce artefacts that translate the purpose and vision of the group, into high quality and highly valued contributions to the field of Cyberpsychology

  • become the expert source of learning and development for all core members and affiliates, as well as other stakeholders, with an interest in or impacted by Cyberpsychology

  • become the credible professional community of choice for Cyberpsychologists and affiliate members, who are all united by the same objective of furthering and promoting the research in the field

  • be known as the expert advisory body that serves a wide range of stakeholders including government and policy makers, who have a shared interest in understanding, monitoring, regulating, managing and mitigating the impacts of digital technology on the wider society

  • maintain key ethical values of ethical practice, professionalism, and transparency, in all that we do
