Oxford University Press

This chapter examines psychologists’ career-long policy journeys. The first section of the chapter centers on psychologists’ multiple policy involvements during the course of their careers, with specific focus on the nature of these multiple involvements. Six characteristics of these involvements are described. The second section of the chapter focuses on three distinctive aspects of a policy career that interviewees highlight as particularly important for the field moving forward. The importance of these aspects resides in their respective contributions to expanding the quality, effectiveness, and scope of policy influence. The three distinctive aspects are interdisciplinary collaboration, policy-related leadership positions, and international policy involvement.

Keywords:   policy journeys, career pathways, multiple policy involvements, interdisciplinary policy collaboration, policy-related leadership positions, international policy involvement
