The Intervention Science preconference brings together researchers interested in turning social psychology outward to understand and address pressing societal problems. This year, we will discuss the science of field-based interventions that address social issues where they occur: in classrooms, college campuses, communities, health-focused organizations, and other settings, both in the US and internationally. This year’s speakers, including Claude Steele, Buju Dasgupta, Eran Halperin, Linda Tropp, Sarah Townsend, Rahul Ladhania, Calvin Lai, Jenna Clark, Ana Gantman, and Valerie Purdie Greenaway, conduct interventions across a wide variety of field settings, on topics such as improving equity in education, reducing sexual assault on college campuses, improving public health by helping people develop healthy habits, preventing violent extremism, promoting intergroup relations in conflict settings, and more. We will also feature panels and/or breakout sessions to discuss different types of field experiments and practical considerations in conducting field intervention research in more detail.
