Psychology’s impact on public understanding of major events

11 October 2019

Broadcaster Claudia Hammond and a former president of the BPS will be among experts discussing the impact psychology has on public perception of major events.

War, politics, global crisis, technological change and economics will all be under scrutiny at ‘Psychology, society and the public’, an event organised by our History of Psychology Centre set to take place in London on Thursday the 7th of November.

This event, the 2019 edition of our annual 'Stories of Psychology' series, will feature presentations from Professor Graham Davey, a past president of the BPS and mental health researcher and Professor Peter Bull, an expert on politicians and the way they speak.

They will be joined by the media psychologist Dr Sharon Coen and the educational psychologist Mike Chamarette.

The registration fee of £18 includes refreshments and a buffet lunch.
