Welcome to the worlds of ePsych. This exotic place is devoted to the study of psychology, the science of behavior and the mind. I am Brasha-san and, like you, am a student of psychology. Although I have studied the subject for many years, I still find it complicated, bewildering, confusing, maddening, at times even unbelievable. But psychology is also wonderful, beautiful, and glorious!

Without a doubt, psychology is the most personal of all the sciences. It is the science of you and me and all the other people and creatures we interact with throughout our lives. When you learn about psychology, you will discover how people are able to perform seemingly impossible activities with ease, and why they sometimes stumble on the simplest of tasks.

The Freud Museum London

The Freud Museum London

The Freud Museum, at 20 Maresfield Gardens in Hampstead, was the home of Sigmund Freud and his family when they escaped Austria following the Nazi annexation in 1938. It remained the family home until Anna Freud, the youngest daughter, died in 1982. The centerpiece of the museum is Freud’s study, preserved just as it was during his lifetime.

It contains Freud’s remarkable collection of antiquities: Egyptian; Greek; Roman and Oriental. Almost 2,000 items fill cabinets and are arranged on every surface. There are rows of ancient figures on the desk where Freud wrote until the early hours of the morning. The walls are lined with shelves containing Freud’s large library.

The house is also filled with memories of his daughter, Anna, who lived there for 44 years and continued to develop her pioneering psychoanalytic work, especially with children. It was her wish that the house become a museum to honor her illustrious father. The Freuds were fortunate to be able to bring all their furniture and household effects to London. These included splendid Biedermeier chests, tables and cupboards, and a fine collection of 18th and 19th century Austrian painted country furniture.

Undoubtedly the most famous piece of furniture in all the collection is Freud’s psychoanalytic couch, on which all of his patients reclined. The couch is remarkably comfortable and is covered with a richly colored Iranian rug with chenille cushions piled on top. Other fine Oriental rugs, Heriz and Tabriz, cover the floor and tables.

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.

Psychology.Org

Psychology.Org

We refocused our efforts to promoting psychology as a field, explicitly addressing its role in modern medicine, the humanities and social and scientific research. We wanted to make a site that engaged with two audiences: prospective students considering an education in psychology and job seekers, be they recent grads or professionals looking to advance their careers or return to school.

As you explore the site, you will recognize our effort to not only address these audiences, but to really show visitors what it takes to move from the classroom to the workforce, whether that be to clinical care, private practice or a corporate consultancy.

We’re excited to be a part of the movement advancing public knowledge of psychology. At this pivotal moment in the history of the discipline, we’re confident psychology.org is poised to make a lasting difference.

Psychonomic Society

Psychonomic Society

The Psychonomic Society is open to those who are interested in experimental psychology, but mainly its members work with cognitive psychology.  The Psychonomic Society “broke off” from the APA in 1959 due to the APA being focused on clinical psychology.

Also, to be a member of the Psychonomic Society, a member must hold a Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree in their field and have published significant research other than their dissertation.
