Days after tomorrow - A Psychology of Brexit

Thursday 28th March 2019 at MediaCityUK, Salford

Brexit was always about control - but how much has been reality or illusion and what does it mean for us whatever happens? This seminar explores the psychology of Brexit, how it has unleashed powerful emotions and why politicians don't seem in control of it after all. A little like Tolkien's ring, has Brexit become too hot to handle, and is uncertainty its likely legacy? As citizens, it is important to consider what we can do to exercise control in planning for our futures and this session is designed to raise issues for the politicians we don't always recognise - all of us!

Who is the course intended for?

The course is intended for undergraduate and postgraduate psychology students. The event is open to both BPS members and Non-Members.
