About SPoR

Welcome to the home of The Social Psychology of Risk (SPoR).

SPoR is about how social arrangements affect decision making in risk.  The SPoR Discipline was founded by Dr Robert Long in 2003. You can download the SPoR Body of Knowledge on the About page.

The Social Psychology of Risk can be studied formally at the Centre for Leadership and Learning in Risk (CLLR) or through practical workplace training through Human Dymensions. This site is the home for the SPoR discipline providing resources, exchange, engagement, research, papers, tools and access to SPoR expertise across the globe.
