Psychology is an academic discipline and social science that strives to understand unconscious and conscious behavior and mind of individuals and groups.
Psychologists explore different types of behavioral and mental processes, including perception, attention, cognition, emotion, intelligence and motivation. We also must not forget the examination of how personality and interpersonal relationships develop, as they are an important part of psychology.
On the practical individual level, psychology is all about making people’s life experience happier, more productive and fulfilling. It somehow includes more scientific, systematic and long‑term approaches of personal development to tackle bigger emotional challenges like depression, anxiety, isolation and procrastination.
Psychology (especially psychiatry) also deals with mental illnesses that are treated as serious medical conditions with a combination of medications, therapy and other techniques.
This category is a collection of psychology articles that discuss issues and solutions beyond the power of popular psychology and more superficial personal development tools; however, the articles don’t deal with issues that require medical attention (schizophrenia, chronic depression etc.), since I am not a doctor.
The articles present different types of psychological therapy (psychoanalysis, CBT, transactional analysis etc.), their tools and how they can be applied in personal life. If you are interested in psychology and different types of therapy, these category is the perfect choice for you.
