Implications for Psychology: Anchor Papers—Abstracts and Summary Drafts

The upcoming workshop is a further step in the production of an edited volume. The process began with the circulation of three anchor papers. This has been followed with the drafting of summaries by six further participants. These materials all have been distributed to workshop participants in advance of the meeting and are included in the workshop notebook. Appended below are the latest summaries of the six further papers. These six summary drafts and the three anchor papers will provide the starting point for the upcoming workshop discussions.
