The health benefits of living in a cohesive community are well known, but only recently have social psychologists shown how and why feelings of belonging to a neighbourhood can be good for us. In this lecture Professor Stevenson outlines his previous research on neighbourhood identity in Ireland, England and India, as well as his team’s recent research into how the NHS now uses Social Prescribing to harness the health benefits of neighbourhood belonging.

He also considers who might be excluded from neighbourhood identities and why incomers can be seen as an ‘identity threat’ to local communities. He reports his new research from Northern Ireland, England and Finland into how stronger neighbourhood identities can help residents cope more effectively with the challenges of community diversification.

Professor Clifford Stevenson

Professor Clifford Stevenson received his PhD in Social Psychology from Lancaster University in 2005 and has worked in the University of Limerick, Anglia Ruskin University and Queen’s University Belfast where he was Director of the Centre for Research in Political Psychology. His research examines how the groups to which people belong serve to shape their perception and experience of social reality as well as providing them with collective resilience.
