About the Centre For Research in Social Psychology (CRiSP)

The Centre for Research in Social Psychology (CRiSP) conducts basic and applied research in social psychology.  Many of our members focus on groups and intergroup relations, but the Centre prides itself in the diversity of its approaches.

The Centre was formally established in 1995 within the School of Psychology as the Centre for Research in Group Processes (changing its name to CRiSP in 2010). A key function of the Centre is to provide be a centre of excellence for developing theory and for conducting, applying and disseminating research. It also serves a critical graduate training function. The Centre has a suite of graduate student offices, a computerized research laboratory, interview rooms, a video projection room and group discussion laboratory, and a large group processes laboratory.

Activities of the Centre include weekly labgroup meetings, a vibrant social psychology seminar series, and a professional skill development seminar series for its postgraduate students. A key event is the annual Brisbane Symposium on Self and Identity (BSSI), complemented by a series of interdisciplinary symposia throughout the year.

CRiSP’s  mission is the development, application and dissemination of social psychological theory and research, and to provide excellence in student training.
