Editorial

At a recent conference I attended, a speaker mentioned psychologist Denise Rousseau's project Science you can use. The annual series would provide answers to practical questions of interest to practitioners and policy makers. Apparently the first round of well-intentioned submissions had led to the reaction 'We have a problem - academics are not good at writing this kind of article'.
Well, I hope that this issue showcases The Psychologist as a forum for this kind of writing. We hear from psychologists working with the homeless (p.284) and the former APA President who commissioned a Task Force on the topic (p.275 and p.360). Rhiannon Turner outlines novel ways to improve intergroup relations; Sarah Davidson describes her work with the British Red Cross in Haiti and other places; and Vaughan Bell talks to Teresa Pacheco Tabuenca about emergency response in Madrid (p.308). All psychologists making a difference, with science - and a publication - that you can use.  

Dr Jon Sutton (Managing Editor)
