The Intervention Science preconference brings together researchers interested in turning social psychology outward to understand and address pressing societal problems. This year, we will discuss the science of field-based interventions that address social issues where they occur: in classrooms, college campuses, communities, health-focused organizations, and other settings, both in the US and internationally.
This year’s speakers, including Buju Dasgupta, Eran Halperin, Nicole Stephens, Rezarta Bilali, Rahul Ladhania, Ana Gantman, and Valerie Purdie Greenaway, conduct interventions across a wide variety of field settings, on topics such as improving equity in education, reducing sexual assault on college campuses, improving public health by helping people develop healthy habits, preventing violent extremism, promoting intergroup relations in conflict settings, and more. We also plan to feature breakout sessions to discuss different types of field experiments and practical considerations in conducting field intervention research in more detail.
We invite abstract submissions to present in our poster session (open to all attendees) and/or to give an early career data blitz (open to graduate students and recent PhDs).
