Create Personalized Organic Compost

There are countless reasons to eat organic food. It is the best choice for your health and the health of the our environment. So why doesn't everyone go fair trade? There is a higher cost using organic food. It is more to produce food naturally knowning that cost is forwarded to the consumer. There are, however, things that you can do today to make the switch the signal from organic less higher priced.

Eggplant, like okra, grows almost too well. I harvested 15-20…

Another missed opportunity for clinical psychology to challenge racism

Recent films ‘Long walk to freedom’ ‘12 years a slave’ and ‘Selma’, tell stories about Black people’s struggle and resistance. These stories, although important, promote the idea that Black people have been liberated from racism through successful legal reform. These are also stories of a time so far away we can be excused for leaving our…

Save Inkwell Gardens

Hi Everyone.

I'm currently studying my Masters in Community and Critical Social Psychology at York St John. Back in March, as part of the placement in the Community module, I did some work at a place called Inkwell Arts, and since then have continued to volunteer there whilst studying and working part-time.

The reason for this is, and i am trying to refrain from cliched hyperbole, but it really is a great cause. I could go on absolute length (and indeed my dissertation next…

Does it take David Cameron longer to choose his ‘G8 casual look’ than it does to refuse medical staff a pay rise?

That wasn’t the first one that he tried on. Don’t think for a second that it was the first. David would like us to think it was the first.

But the real scene was very…

A 3rd Year Module on Community Psychology at Nottingham Trent University

Hello all,

I was asked last year to write something for a European Community Psychology newsletter in response to a call for any syllabi that people may have.  Here's an attached example of one module that we have developed at Nottingham Trent University, which has created some degree of enthusiasm and interest.
