Developing an impact-literate approach to psychology interventions Workshop

This workshop first presents the concept of ‘impact literacy’, emphasising the need to understand the how, what and who of brokering research into practice. Drawing from a series of empirical research studies, this learning is also synthesised into two new models of impact literate psychology interventions spanning theory development through to implementation. Delegates will then be guided through a mapping activity to consider how to reinforce how, what and who to optimise benefits.
