President’s letter July 2017

The latest from British Psychological Society President Nicola Gale.

It’s July, often a time of transition between levels of study, training, work experience, and beginning of employment. For some these are planned milestones along a cherished career path, for others, the route is more circuitous.

For some pre-tertiary psychology is the start of the journey, for others it’s the undergraduate degree. Some want to push academic frontiers, some are driven by a desire to make things better for people in one of the applied branches of the profession.
