SMILe was formed in 2008 after its founder discovered that she was not the only one suffering in (relative) silence through University with mental illness. Students she talked to felt their universities didn’t want to admit their students were ‘unhappy’, especially in the long term, and that as students their vulnerability was overlooked.
The first release includes an introduction, an episode on bullying, and an episode on young childrenâ€™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.
Psychology is the study of the behaviors and mental functions of not only humans but animals as well. This study of the human mind can be traced back to ancient Greece, China and Persia, where philosophers wrote out theories on why humans behave in the way that they do. However, the organized study of psychology only began as early as the 1800s and since then several fields have developed that focus on certain aspects of psychology. The most notable of these are clinical, cognitive, comparative, developmental, educational, experimental, forensic, industrial-organizational, school and social. While many of these fields of study often overlap, they each offer a unique and invaluable look at the minds of both humans and animals.
This site provides useful general references for both professionals and the general public. It is not intended as a substitute for individualized professional evaluation or treatment. There are many good resources here, including information, support groups, and clinical treatment providers.
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.
