An introductory guide to psychological literacy and psychologically literate citizenship

This guide provides a basic introduction to the related concepts of psychological literacy and psychologically literate citizenship. Psychological literacy encapsulates the idea that an understanding of basic principles of human behaviour and development gained through study of Psychology will help us to better understand ourselves and others and will help individuals and organisations to function better. Psychologically literate citizenship extends this idea to incorporate the benefits that an understanding of Psychology can bring to the individuals who study it and their local and global communities. The guide will argue that Psychology offers potential solutions to many of the world’s most pressing problems.
