APA: This is Psychology

These brief videos are intended to educate the general public about the science of psychology and to illustrate how psychological research can be applied to a broad range of issues and challenges. They are part of an expanded APA public education campaign to increase people’s understanding and appreciation of psychological science. We are particularly excited about their potential for use as part of secondary school psychology and other science programs.

The first release includes an introduction, an episode on bullying, and an episode on young children’s mental health. We hope you find them interesting and informative. Feel free to link to these videos from your professional websites. APA will be linking to them on our Facebook and LinkedIn pages.

Mental Help Net

Mark Dombeck (director at Mental Help Net) contacted me regarding his site. Online since 1995, Mental Help net has thousands of articles on numerous topics in mental health/illness, wellness, life events and lifespan development, divided into topic centers. In addition the site also provides book reviews, daily updated health news, blogs, podcasts, question and answer service and a therapist directory. Managed by clinical psychologists, the site promotes empirically supported therapies while also attempting to cover “the full spectrum of appropriate treatments”. Notable on the site is the “Wise Counsel Podcast” which is an interview series with psychotherapy luminaries (e.g., Irvin Yalom, David Barlow).
