Why Public Outreach?

The purpose of public outreach is to get empirical research findings to the general population. So much of what we (academics and social scientists) research is published in peer reviewed journals and read only by other academics. But the truth is, research can HELP others. A big goal in my research is to find ways in which we can improve our relationships through communication. Even small adjustments in our behavior can make a BIG impacts on our relational quality and personal health.
