The inaugural Intervention Science preconference at SPSP 2017 was a resounding success, with a packed room and lively and dynamic discourse all day. We hope to build on this momentum with an all-new line up of presenters in 2018. As in 2017, we will bring together diverse researchers who study theory-driven social psychological interventions that ameliorate real-world social problems in today’s society. Our goal is to extend the vibrant discussion that we started last year about the latest intervention research, and the science of designing, implementing, and evaluating effective psychological interventions. Further, we will foster an interdisciplinary perspective in 2018 by including insights on intervention science from speakers who work outside social and personality psychology. Speakers include Judy Harackiewicz, Jamil Zaki, Crystal Hall (interdisciplinary: psychology/public policy), Patricia Devine, Nicole Stephens, Tiffany Brannon, Valerie Purdie Greenaway, Alexander Coppock (interdisciplinary: political science), Emily Merz (early career; interdisciplinary: neuroscience/developmental psychology), and Kate Turetsky (early career).

Registration for preconferences is limited and fills quickly.
Registration is now open and will not reopen once this preconference fills.
We invite attendees who would like to present a poster on their intervention research to send their submission to us at email@example.com by December 15th. Poster submissions are open to all attendees, especially doctoral students and recent PhDs (degree awarded 2013 or later).
Please submit your:
- Poster title
- Name, email address, and affiliation of author(s)
- 250 word abstract (for evaluation), which should include a clear description of your intervention, method, and findings
- 50 word description (for program, if selected)
- Your actual or expected year of receiving PhD
Please include "Intervention Science Poster Submission" in the subject line of your email. Note that data must be collected prior to submission and that all presenters must be registered for the Intervention Science preconference. Our poster session will take place during the lunch hour. We look forward to your submissions!
Do you have questions about how to design, implement, or evaluate effective social psychological interventions? We have set aside time in the afternoon for our distinguished speakers to answer them! Please submit any questions you have in advance using this web form. We will also take questions during the preconference.
