Event Description


Next London Comm Psych Network Session - 

THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY PSYCHOLOGY TASKFORCE ON AUSTERITY – HOW DO WE ACT?

Date:   Weds 11th June
Time:   18.30-9pm
Place:  TBC

Carl Walker and Sally Zlotowitz will be facilitating a session about the European Community Psychology Association taskforce on austerity.

Discussion and action will include...

•       How do we best disseminate the evidence that comes out of the austerity taskforce?
•       How do we build partnerships both within the BPS and in the other relevant organisations fighting the impacts of austerity to provide a   coordinated message?
•       How do we work to think about broadening and challenging the problematically narrow remit of psychologists in such a way that we can be more effectively positioned to challenge these problems?
•       How do we work towards a platform where critically minded psychologists can have a more public voice in austerity/wellbeing debates?
•       How do we encourage psychologists/practitioners to be more active on explicitly political issues that affect their service users/communities?
•       How do we involve and join alongside our service users in this activism?


We welcome further ideas for this session. Please contact us on this website, thanks!

A great report on the 'Story of Austerity' and its framing.
