Discussion: Future Directions in Applied Social Psychology
Researchers have shown that an individual’s driving becomes impaired when using handheld and hands-free cell phones because of the demands cell phones pose to one’s attention (Strayer & Johnston, 2001). And yet, only “16 states, DC, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands prohibit all drivers from using hand-held cell phones while driving” (Governors Highway Safety Association, 2018, para. 2). What factors account for why psychological science may not always transfer to real-world applications?
For this Discussion, you will consider your plans to “give [social] psychology away.” You will also identify a social or practical issue that is likely to garner interest among social psychologists in the near future.

To Prepare:
Review this week’s Learning Resources, and focus on how social psychology theory and research can be successfully transferred to application. Also, reflect on social psychology’s future and how you will disseminate your knowledge of the field.
By Day 4
Post an explanation of what constitutes successful transferability of social psychology theory and research to application. Next, identify a social or practical issue that is likely to garner interest among social psychologists in the next 5 years. Then, with this issue in mind, describe at least one factor or force that might promote transferability and at least one factor or force that might discourage transferability. Finally, describe how you envision “giving away” social psychology as a scholar-practitioner and agent of positive social change.
Support your response with reference to this week’s Learning Resources and other relevant scholarly literature.
