Psychology is the study of the mind from a social science perspective. The field can be broken down into a great number of different sections, a few of which we have listed below as examples of what you can find out about in this category.
Abnormal psychologyThis branch of psychology looks at unusual behaviours and thoughts that fall into the category of mental and emotional disorders. They may be analysed from a number of viewpoints such as biopsychosocial, and include aspects such as depression, personality disorders, anxiety, phobias, and more.
In child and developmental psychology, psychologists study the cognitive processes involved in the earlier stages of life. They may work with the families of children with behavioural, and learning difficulties, analysing what support the child needs and how to achieve certain goals.

Forensic psychologists span the fields of psychology and law, to apply clinical psychology in a legal setting. They may need to assess individuals who have committed crimes, undertake threat assessments, or evaluate a person’s post-traumatic stress, amongst other things.
Despite the multitude of subcategories in this genre, psychologists across the board often share a similar core training in quantitative and qualitative research methods, psychological methodology, clinical skills such as assessment techniques, statistics for psychologists, critical thinking skills, and more.
