Event Description

An event organised by the British Psychological Society’s Community Psychology Section

Quick Overview:

  • Are you interested to find out how to apply psychological knowledge to shape policies that can really affect people’s lives? 
  • Would you like to explore different ways of bringing about change for the health and well-being of your community? 

This event is aimed at addressing these kinds of issues.

This free event is aimed at bringing together people from community groups, those who work in policy development, researchers, educators and practitioners, and virtually anyone with an interest in creating social change, whether at the national or local level.  We welcome members of the general public and we would like this event to create opportunities for learning from each other’s experiences and perspectives.

If you’re intrigued about these kinds of issues, do please sign up and let’s engage in a conversation about how to create movements for change and hope by applying community psychology principles and practices. 

Confirmed speakers so far are:

  • Dr Lisa Cameron, Member of Parliament.
  • Gregor Henderson, Director of Wellbeing and Mental Health at Public Health England.
  • Karen Rothery, Surrey Sports Park Chief Executive.
  • Anders Dahlbeck, Action Aid Policy Lead.
  • Dr Nina Browne - University College London and founder of 'Owls' social enterprise.

Places are limited so do sign up soon!  Sign up to attend via: http://tinyurl.com/CommunityHope13Dec16

I look forward to seeing you at this event.

Glenn Williams, Chair of the British Psychological Society’s Community Psychology Section.
