Mission Statement (as of October 1, 2020)
Div. 1 (The Society for General Psychology) promotes the creation of coherence among psychology’s diverse evidence based specialties, other scientific disciplines and the humanities. It encourages analysis of the merits and challenges of bridging concepts, methods, and theories. The Division seeks to foster understanding of individual and social life in the nexus of historical, societal, cultural, genetic, neural and other biological processes. Members include students, researchers, scholars, practitioners and public interest psychologists; they receive a subscription to the Division’s quarterly journal, Review of General Psychology® and to its Newsletter, The General Psychologist, and are eligible for Division grants.
