Media Psychology and Technology
Div. 46 was founded in the 1980s to bring scholars, researchers, practitioners, and clinicians together to understand the implications of mediated communications and the increasing integration of media technologies across society.
The rapid change in the media landscape in the last 20 years highlights the importance of media psychology to understand the psychological impact of human interaction with media technologies across society and around the globe. This makes the field of media psychology an exciting and continually evolving field that touches every aspect of life, from business, entertainment and leisure to education and healthcare.
