Science Communication: Engaging Non-scientists 

This webinar is only available to those registered for the event, please log in to view.

Clear, engaging writing not only helps you build public understanding of your research, it enhances your ability to garner support from funders and policymakers. In Science Communication: Engaging Non-scientists, the secondonline workshop in APS’s new Professional Development program, psychological scientists and professionals learned about how to interest media outlets in their work, combat public skepticism about science, and build public appreciation for psychological research. Held in early February, the workshop was led by Scott Sleek, former Director of News & Information at APS and now a freelance writer. With a 40-year career, Sleek specializes in delivering scientific information to professional and mass audiences. His writing has appeared in a variety of newspapers, magazines, and niche publications, including The Washington Post, Washington Monthly, Monitor on Psychology, and The Physiologist.
