Communication & Impact
We run workshops, give public lectures and host visits to the School from schoolchildren (see quotes opposite from a recent workshop on psychology for sixth-formers). We also help the media with research-related requests, and give interviews regarding our own findings.
Technology, Industry & Policy
Many of our researchers work with charitable organisations, industry and politicians. These broader links help us translate our research, including informing policy, developing better procedures and measurement tools, and generating opportunities for improving quality of life with respect to issues of global importance, such as health, training, education, language and climate change.
We always require volunteers to help us undertake our research. Interested individuals can find out more by going to our volunteering section which describes the Cardiff Community Panel, and provides information about studies investigating development, fertility and autism.
Teaching Sixth-Formers about Psychology
"Instead of thinking I'm probably going to do psychology, I now think I'm definitely going to do it. I've left with an optimistic feeling about the future."
"I found that psychology has many branches and it seems very interesting. I see it more as a science."
"Good insight into what it would be like to be a psychology student."
