APA Rolls Out "This is Psychology" Video Series

We’d like to share with you a new series of public education videos featuring APA CEO Norman B. Anderson, PhD, discussing important trends and research in psychology. Called This is Psychology, the series features videos that will be posted about once a month on APA’s website, on an APA YouTube channel, and in iTunes as downloadable podcasts. 

These brief videos are intended to educate the general public about the science of psychology and to illustrate how psychological research can be applied to a broad range of issues and challenges. They are part of an expanded APA public education campaign to increase people’s understanding and appreciation of psychological science. We are particularly excited about their potential for use as part of secondary school psychology and other science programs.

The first release includes an introduction, an episode on bullying, and an episode on young children’s mental health. We hope you find them interesting and informative. Feel free to link to these videos from your professional websites. APA will be linking to them on our Facebook and LinkedIn pages.
