PoP! Understanding the Psychology of Poverty
Hannah Absalom shared aspects of her research and invited delegates to feedback opinions and experiences looking at the role of housing and it's social purpose.
Areas covered were:
- A very brief outline of Behavioural Economics and how it resulted in two strands, traditional behavioural insights
and the Psychology of Poverty (PoP).
- Why it’s relevant to social housing, especially now
- PoP’s insights into the individual living in poverty
- PoP’s insights into the environment of poverty
- PoP’s insights into the perceptions of poverty
- Consideration of ethics and risks.
