Intervention Science: Harnessing Psychology to Address Real-World Social Problems

The Intervention Science preconference brings together researchers interested in turning psychology outward to understand and address pressing societal issues. In 2023, we will showcase intervention research using diverse theoretical and methodological approaches to tackle social problems, including a discussion on ways to translate basic research into scalable interventions that have real-world impact. We also invite abstract submissions to present in our poster session (open to all attendees) and/or to give an early career data blitz (open to graduate students and recent PhDs).
