Ever wonder why all the really useful stuff never seems to make it into print? You know, the insights & tricks our supervisors impart to us after we’ve confessed to our latest screw-up?http://www.relaxedtherapist.com/
Over the past 17 years working in the NHS, I’ve been given numerous hints & tips by supervisors, colleagues, trainees and clients, most of which aren’t to be found in any textbook.
I’ve passed these on to my trainees (and they’ve passed them on to theirs) but maybe it’s time we stopped relying on word of mouth and started sharing our hard-won experience.

There is a dominant conception of the human animal as a rational, or at least reasonable, preference-driven chooser, whose behavior reflects preferences, moderated by information processing and will, but little else. Laws, policies, and the most influential legal theories are premised on that same conception. Social psychology and related fields have discovered countless ways in which that conception is wrong. “The situation” refers to causally significant features around us and within us that we do not notice or believe are relevant in explaining human behavior. “Situationism” is an approach that is deliberately attentive to the situation. It is informed by social science—particularly social psychology, social cognition, cognitive neuroscience and related fields—and the discoveries of market actors devoted to influencing consumer behavior—marketers, public relations experts, and the like. The Situationist is a forum for scholars, students, lawyers, policymakers, and interested citizens to examine, discuss, and debate the effect of situational forces – that is, non-salient factors around and within us – on law, policy, politics, policy theory, and our social, political, and economic institutions.

...an award winning blog that covers topics from multidimensional biopsychosocial perspectives. We review the latest news and research related toneuroscience/neurology, psychology/psychiatry, andhealth/healthcare. Our blog serves as a focal point for attracting new minds beyond the basic sciences of the mind-and-brain and into the biopsychosocial model.
This project is an official undertaking of the Global Neuroscience Initiative Foundation (GNIF) — a major international non-profit charity organization for the advancement of neurological and mental health patient welfare, education, and research.
I am currently a researcher in neuropsychiatry, though my formal education background is in physics and biology. My primary career interest is pediatric psychiatry, though I find I am swaying more to the young adult category with increasing experience. I am not a doctor, but I go to rounds, read medical journals, and work with patients. I am also a patient myself. The articles posted here are the result of my varied exposures to the world of psychiatry.
...IS THE PLACE WHERE I HIGHLIGHT AND EXPLORE THE MOST FASCINATING AND COMPELLING PSYCHOLOGY RELATED NEWS AND RESEARCH. WHETHER YOU ARE NEW TO PSYCHOLOGY, CURRENTLY STUDYING OR THINKING ABOUT STUDYING PSYCHOLOGY, OR CONSIDER YOURSELF AN EXPERT IN THE FIELD, I VERY MUCH HOPE THAT YOU FIND THE MATERIAL FEATURED ON THE EXPLORING PSYCHOLOGY BLOG INTERESTING.
