Psychology is the science concerned with mind and behavior and spans subject matter from biology to sociology. Many problems facing society today are problems about behavior - drug addiction, personal and work relationships, violence, stress, and our relationship with our environment.
Psychologists conduct research, serve as consultants to
communities and organizations, diagnose and treat people with
psychological adjustment disorders, teach, study
work/home/social environments, promote physical and mental
health, and develop solutions to meet the unique needs of
societies in the United States and elsewhere.
Some of the sub-fields in psychology include clinical, counseling, developmental, educational, forensic, health, industrial/organizational, neuropsychology, quantitative and measurement, physiological, psychometrics, school, social, and sports psychology.
