Looking for information about Psychology? This guide will help you find that info, which might be useful if you are looking for books and articles for class. 

Using this guide, you can search the catalog for books or psychology databases for scholarly research articles on all aspects of psychology. It will be helpful to know some good search terms so you might want to go to the Reference tab or Website tab to find keywords. Also, use terms that you have studied in class. Psychology terms are more professional than slang words we use in everyday speech. Example: teens/adolescents.

Abnormal psychology deals with the different aspects of abnormal behavior, both causes and treatments.

Educational psychology focuses on how people learn and develop. This also includes groups such as gifted students or those with learning disabilities.

Health psychology is a branch of human behavior that is concerned with the psychological implications of physical actions on health. For instance, smoking, weight gain, stress management, and fitness can affect our mental health.

Developmental psychology focuses on human development. This type of psychology describes, measures, and explains behavioral changes throughout the lifespan.

Social psychology explores how we live and interact in the world. Pop culture, group behavior, the media, and our attitudes and opinions are all part of social psychology.
