Psychology Week 2019

Psychology and social justice issues

What can we learn from young people?

In 2019, Psychology Week will promote what psychology as a science tells us about young people’s feelings, attitudes and beliefs about social justice, with a particular focus on the climate crisis. 

The APS will release a position paper during Psychology Week, looking at what Australian research tells us about young people and social justice involvement, and the relationship to psychology and psychological science. 

About Psychology Week

Psychology Week is an annual initiative of the Australian Psychological Society that aims to increase public awareness of how psychology can help Australians lead healthier, happier and more meaningful lives. 

The APS and its psychologist members use Psychology Week to demystify and communicate the depth, breadth and many benefits of psychology. Many Australians benefit from psychology every day, in almost every setting – from classroom to workplace, private clinics to large hospitals, sports fields, courtrooms and much more.
