Our Northern Ireland Branch, although based in Northern Ireland, supports Society members throughout the whole of Ireland.
The Northern Ireland Branch (NIBPS) was formed in 1956. A regional Office, located in the School of Psychology at Queen’s University Belfast, was opened in September 2000 to support our local Divisional and Branch networks.
Branch activities include:
- Bringing psychology to society through free public events.
- Liaising with the Northern Ireland Assembly and Executive to promote the discipline of psychology
- Providing quality continuing professional development to members.
- Running an annual programme of events, many in partnership with other professional bodies.
NIBPS runs a conference, A Flavour of Psychology, partners in an All Ireland Careers Conference and an A Level conference annually.
Becoming a part of a branch automatically comes with your membership if you live in the UK.
The Branch has a membership announcement email list to inform members of activities and initiatives that are relevant and specific to our members as well as requests for engagement on topical issues.
