Psychosocial Thinking in Times of Covid-19 – APS Online Events Series

Psychosocial thinking is needed more than ever in these times and we have therefore devised a free online programme of various events. Please click on Events, Past Events and Recordings of Past Events for more information.



We are a newly established learned society, bringing together researchers, teachers, practitioners and students from different fields who are interested in contributing to the development of this exciting inter/trans-disciplinary field of study.

We organise regular conferences, seminars and workshops that explore a wide range of psychosocial phenomena and perspectives. We seek to promote the field of Psychosocial Studies and to challenge the often rigid disciplinary distinctions that characterise the social sciences and the humanities in contemporary university settings and beyond.
