Psychology and Counselling Research Centre

Open Psychology Research Centre


The Open Psychology Research Centre is the research centre of the School of Psychology & Counselling at The Open University. The Centre represents a progressive approach to psychological research, theory and practice that is tightly connected with other social sciences and humanities disciplines. It champions creative, critical and credible psychological research that makes a difference to real social issues, that informs practice, and that inspires a positive vision for living together fairly, equitably and imaginatively. Our engaged research also feeds into scholarship for teaching at the OU.
