Welcome to the North West Branch of the British Psychological
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
The branches exist to bring together psychologists of all
fields who might otherwise exist quite separately given the vast scope of the
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
and http://www.facebook.com/NWPsych for
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.
