≪Organizer Abstract≫
These thematic sessions focus on psychological literacy, the capacity to intentionally apply psychological science to achieve personal, professional, and societal goals. Taylor and Hulme will describe a compendium of teaching tools to enable psychological literacy in UK psychology undergraduate students. Suleeman reports on a survey of first-year psychology students' reasons for why they chose to study psychology, with the aim of helping Career and Guidance high school teachers promote psychological literacy among their students. Kreitler surveyed Israeli psychology students to investigate why many students are dissatisfied with the study of psychology, despite psychology being a highly desired profession. Morrissey and colleagues describe the impact on developing psychological literacy of a work-integrated learning unit for Australian final-year psychology students. How effectively these resources, strategies and findings facilitate or contribute to our understanding of psychological literacy will then be discussed.
