How does it feel to be a psychologist in these ‘interesting times’? Can it seem like the weight of the world is on your shoulders: so many societal issues, so little time?

I can feel overwhelmed on your behalf with the idea that psychologists can work across health and social systems, with shrinking budgets, in order tonip problems in the bud or tackle them if they do arise. But then, in British Psychological Society. organised sessions at the European Congress of Psychology in Moscow (see p.10), I hear examples of this already happening

In many of these areas – mental and physical health, prejudice, political engagement – there’s also a sense that the next generation are far more ‘woke’ than we might be. Psychologists are often playing a key role in seeking to ensure this is the case. In this issue, we bring together some of those ‘schooling the good citizen’ (starting on p.34).

Also bringing a strong focus on underlying values is incoming Society President David Murphy: meet him on p.30.
