Welcome

    Welcome to the North West Branch of the British Psychological Society’s Website.

The British Psychological society is the representative body for psychology and psychologists in the UK. The Society and its members develop, promote and apply psychology for the public good. We enhance the efficiency and usefulness of psychologists by setting high standards of professional education and knowledge. We cover all areas of psychological research and practice.

The Society operates a number of divisions, sections and special groups as well as having a number of regional branches. The North West Branch is one of the longest standing having recently celebrated our eightieth birthday.

The branches exist to bring together psychologists of all fields who might otherwise exist quite separately given the vast scope of the subject.

We also bring together experienced members with students new to the field and to also cater to anyone with a passing interest in the subject. We exist to bring together those who work, teach, research or study in the field and to share our love and passion for the subject and its benefits with as many people as possible within the region.

We currently run two regular events: ‘Psychology in the pub’ an event for anyone interested in coming along and hearing something about one area of psychology in a nice casual easy going talk. We also run ‘Psychs in the city’ an event for psychologists of all fields and levels to come and network and listen to a short talk. For more you can find our Facebook pages http://www.facebook.com/BPSNorthWest for psychologists and http://www.facebook.com/NWPsych for public events.

As well as these events we are looking forward to another conference after the resounding success of the last one, we also have a forensic event planned. As the committee is growing and building on the success of recent years we are looking to collaborate more with other divisions and sections in the region, link up more with the North East branch, work closer with students and run some of our own CPD events. If you’re interested in getting involved directly or have any ideas you’d like to see you can contact us on north.west@bps.org.uk

Thanks for visiting
