Pragmatism rules - ACBS UK/ROI conference 2020
In 1952, pioneer of social psychology Kurt Lewin wrote, “There is nothing so practical as good theory”. From a contextual perspective, theories are tools for acting in the world.
Whether we are applied practitioners, basic scientists or somewhere between, theories tell us what to consider as data, and how to predict, influence and define if we have made progress in our goals.
Our conference theme reflects the pragmatic integration of theory and effective action; a core principle of Contextual Behavioural Science.
Delegates are welcome to submit for presentation a wide range of proposals for symposia, posters, research papers, panel discussions and in conference workshops that tackle the theme from any angle: theory to practice, and in any context: therapy, education, health, organisational, coaching, behaviour change and laboratory.
Come and share your work, and tell other delegates how it is making a practical difference in the world and to our shared science.'
Submissions Close Friday 24th April 2020.
