Editorial: Applying psychology: A feitschrift for Dr.
Elizabeth A. Dunne.
Irish Journal of Psychology, 29 (Special Issue).
This special issue of The Irish Journal of Psychology is dedicated to the
memory of Dr. Elizabeth Dunne, our friend and colleague, and especially to
her commitment to the application of psychology. It celebrates her particular
contribution by surveying the variety of ways in which psychology is applied
through, for example, practical problem solving, education, and advocacy.
Applying psychology is a complex and often controversial practice; complex
because most real world problems are multi-dimensional and intersubjectively
defined; controversial because psychologists, like other professionals, carry
with them their own values and perspectives. In this editorial, we sketch out
some of the contributions Liz made in her working life, and present an overview
of the 12 articles comprised within this special issue, and how they touch on
Liz's interests and engage with the complexity of applying psychology.
