Welcome to the Association for Applied and Clinical Sociology
Using Sociological Knowledge to Promote Beneficial Social Change
We are social scientists dedicated to the utilization of sociological methods, concepts, and theories to effect beneficial social change. Our mission is to advance sociological application and practice both within and beyond academia. We believe that sociology should not be limited only to observation, documentation, and analysis, but that it must also be translated, applied and, whenever possible, used to design, implement, and evaluate interventions meant to improve outcomes and solve challenges.
We invite you to join us in our mission, through membership in our association and/or by participating in our annual meeting, which is open to all social and behavioral scientists and business, industry, non-profit, and government professionals. The theme for our upcoming meeting, to be held in Atlanta, GA, in October 2020, is “Making Sociology Actionable: Translation, Implementation, and Intervention Design for Social Change.” Please click here for more information.
