The Association for Psychosocial Studies was formed in 2013 and it aims to develop new understandings of the interrelationships between social, cultural and psychological meaning and experience in different contexts.
APS are an 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. The Journal of Psychosocial Studies is the official journal of APS.
