PsyBlog

PsyBlog

Psychologist Dr. Jeremy Dean is the founder and author of the popular website ‘PsyBlog’.

The site analyses–with wit, clarity, and erudition–psychological studies that are relevant to everyday life. Topics have included how memory works, self-control, methods for boosting creativity and the psychology of work.

Dean launched PsyBlog in 2004, when he noticed a dearth of smart, readable news for those who like psychological insights backed up by science. Read the world over, the site has been featured in the following media outlets: BBC News, The New York Times (‘Health Around the Web’), The Los Angeles Times, Wired, NPR, The Guardian, and The London Times.

Dean’s first degree was in law but after a career in the Internet industry he began studying psychology. He has now racked up three higher degrees in psychology, his latest being a doctorate from University College London.

Ryan Does Resi

Ryan Does Resi

Ryan Does Resi is a blog of Kim (the Ryan in the story) who has been doing residential treatment due to her eating disorder.  Kim’s style of dialect and and blogging are definitely a little strong for some, so caution is advised, but also, within all that verbiage and extra “attitude,” which is nice to have when there are issues a person is dealing with.

Ryan’s writing style is like sitting next to a friend, listening to a conversation.  It definitely helps you understand what a person might be feeling like when they have an eating disorder, in residency, or just a regular, human day.  Good read.
