Program on Education for Social Responsibility

PsySRWith war, injustice, human rights violations, and threats to sustainability seemingly a tragic fixture of the new century, PsySR’s Program on Education for Social Responsibility aims to bring psychological knowledge, skills, and social change strategies to students, educators, policymakers, mental health professionals, and the general public. Our educational initiatives – which also recognize the importance and promise of “universal duties” – include training programs, classroom materials, online resources, and research reports that highlight key links between psychology, social problems, and effective policies for social change.

The program’s coordinator is Nahid Aziz, and she can be reached
