PSYBlog: Understand Your Mind

This website is about scientific research into how the mind works. The studies have been published in reputable academic journals in many different areas of psychology.

This blog is written, designed and coded by Jeremy Dean who is currently a researcher at University College London, working towards a PhD, having previously completed an MSc in Research Methods in Psychology at the same institution. Before that he obtained a Graduate Diploma in Psychology.

John Suler’s Teaching Psychology

This site is devoted to sharing ideas and resources for teaching clinical psychology, especially undergraduate courses on abnormal psychology, psychotherapy, group dynamics, psychological testing, and clinical components of introductory psychology. My orientation is mostly psychodynamic and humanistic, although all orientations are welcome. I originally developed this site in June of 1995 and periodically update it. So feel free to stop by again. I created many of these teaching activities and resources, although other instructors have generously contributed their ideas too.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy Self-Help Resources

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) has been proven to help mental health problems.  This website offers CBT self-help information, resources and tools, including therapy worksheets.

CBT helps an individual make sense of their current problems, whilst understanding the influences of past experiences, using a diagrammatic representation or “formulation” which directs the treatment.  This formulation may be highly individualized and more complex for severe problems, but may also include more simple vicious cycles when looking at what is helping to keep the problem going today.
