From January to June 2018 the British Psychological Society is hosting the European Semester of Psychology. It's aimed at 'creating a common space in which European psychologists can... foster the sharing and transmission of knowledge and expertise between members and, in turn, to stimulate the ongoing development of a truly European identity among psychologists across Europe'. For more information see uk/eusemester

But what is 'a truly European identity among psychologists across Europe'? And how can 'European Psychology', and for that matter UK Psychology, truly thrive after Brexit? We hope to develop this conversation during the semester. In the words of Telmo Mourinho Baptista, President of the European Federation of Psychologists' Associations, who we meet on p.48, 'keep talking. If we do, we will, in the end, find ways to solve our old and new problems.'

Keep talking to us too! We're 30 this month and would love your feedback.
