A Psychological Manifesto for the Senedd Election 2021

16 July 2020

The British Psychological Society is a registered charity which acts as the representative body for psychology and psychologists in the UK and is responsible for the promotion of excellence and ethical practice in the science, education, and application of the discipline

As a society we support and enhance the development and application of psychology for the greater public good, setting high standards for research, education, and knowledge, and disseminating our knowledge to increase public awareness.

We are calling on political parties to consider how psychological evidence and expertise can improve policy making and to commit to including psychologically informed policies in their manifestos.

Any government serious about improving the lives of the public and understanding why intractable social problems persist must ensure that their policies and interventions are based on an in-depth understanding of human behaviour.

In this document we outline our priorities for the next Welsh Government developed in collaboration with BPS members.
