The goal of the Psychology Science Minute is to present the most relevant scientific research from the field of psychology to the general public over the radio in short 90 second segments.
Why present one minute spots for psychological science?
There’s been exciting progress in psychology. It has made a difference in our lives, as have other scientific discoveries in the past 50 years.
People really don’t know many ideas are based on psychological research. They may be surprised to learn about the varying specialties of expertise within our field.
Messages can be timely...Health care, violence, sexual abuse, conflict, torture, politics of opinion polls, basis for laws and new policies...are periodically in the news.
We have a responsibility to educate the public about our science.
