Editorial, October 2020

Dr Jon Sutton introduces the issue.

To my eyes, 2020 has been defined – for the world, for the British Psychological Society, and for The Psychologist – by Covid-19, diversity and inclusion, and inequality. All three issues seem like good examples of where psychologists need to collaborate widely in order to drive change. 

That collaboration might involve scale, diversity of roles and viewpoints, and partnerships with end users and other disciplines. All are considered in this month’s special collection, alongside a look inside a professional and personal marriage

Pulling together these issues, alongside a huge amount of online material, often feels like the ultimate collaborative effort. Month after month we feature dozens, sometimes hundreds, of you. The only way we can genuinely be a ‘forum for communication, discussion and controversy’ is by hearing from a range of voices, in particular from right across the Society membership. There are so many ways to get involved. See our website, or email [email protected]
