Psych37News.com is a website that dedicated to helping everyday people understand and apply psychological research to their every day lives.
Psych37News.com has three major goals. First, we want to get people talking about psychology. Every person walking the earth should be fascinated by psychology because it is the study of the mind and behavior. Of course, some psychologists study animal brains and behavior, but most study people. You would be surprised at the amount of research that is published every day that never makes to the public's eyes. Sure, psychologists get to read about new and exciting research as it emerges, but the vast majority of people have no clue how their decisions affect their mental and emotional health unless they are actually seeing a psychologist.
This leads us to our second goal. We want to make psychology research applicable to your life. Even though psychologists (and other social scientists) are constantly researching human behavior, a lot of this research hasn't been broken down so that regular people can understand it. That's where Psych37News.com comes in. We have taken on the responsibility of breaking down psychological research. All you have to do is read.
Lastly, we want to de-stigmatize psychology. Despite the tremendous work that psychologists do to make the world healthier one person at a time, the vast majority of our society still associates "psychology" or "psychologist" with the "crazy" or "psycho." This couldn't be further from the truth. Not everyone who visits a psychologist has serious and persistent mental illness. In fact, the majority of people who see a psychologist or counselor just have difficulties navigating life transitions like job loss, divorce or grief.
Our motto is Psychology Is Everywhere! And, our aim is to prove it.
