In 2012 the Institute of Civil Engineers were after a catchy hashtag to promote their work and the societal impact of their discipline. Eschewing the more obvious #CoolasICE/#ICEICEBaby options, they settled on #ThisIsCivilEngineering, and hundreds of projects and partner organisations have now joined in by raising their 'This is Civil Engineering' banners.

What might #ThisIsPsychology look like? Where would we hang our banners? It's almost easier to think where we wouldn't hang them. If just this one issue is anything to go by, they would festoon driverless cars, the beds of patients in 'the grey zone', sporting stars, sniffling workers and safety manuals, anyone looking to forgive, and so much more.

As for the more ineffable side of things, we continue to probe at the boundaries of science and art with the winner of our annual poetry competition: Ilyana Kuhling with 'Multitudes'. We contain multitudes; so does psychology.
