How to Get Involved

There are several ways that you can get involved with SPSSI-UK, for example, you can sign up for the development group, or you can submit UK commentary/endorsement on SPSSI policy briefs, fact-sheets and position statements concerning issues such as Immigration & Minorities, Education, GLBT, Interpersonal Violence, Health, Poverty & Unemployment etc.. A template for commentary/endorsements as well as additional information can be found here (under construction) and your contributions will be posted on this page.

SPSSI-UK is currently developing structures and strategies that will help bring social psychology research to bear on public policy in the UK. For instance, we are working on a framework that will allow us to efficiently and successfully manage policy initiatives and coordinate opportunities for SPSSI-UK members to share their expertise with policy makers in the UK. Please stay tuned for further information.

The University of Kent is sponsoring 10 graduate memberships of SPSSI and we encourage our other UK colleagues to do likewise because a key goal is to involve new researchers as early as possible. Cost for graduate student membership is $25 per year.

If you are interested in joining the Development Group or supporting SPSSI-UK in other ways, such as launching or running activities or having SPSSI-UK link with activities that are already being planned, please contact Natasha Ann Brigham.

To become a member of SPSSI-UK please register for SPSSI membership. Exclusive SPSSI-UK membership does not exist.

Research that produces nothing but books will not suffice.
