“With our new knowledge of the brain, we are just dimly beginning to realize that we can now understand humans, including ourselves, as never before, and that is the greatest advance of the century, and quite possibly the most significant in human history.”   -     Leslie Hart

What everyone needs to know.....

It is common knowledge that public understanding of psychology is typically aligned with the mental health and intervention aspects of the discipline. Most people think of psychologists as clinicians and counselors. Few understand that psychology is the science of behavior, cognition, and emotion. Even fewer recognize psychology as a STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) discipline. People do not generally associate a psychologist with a scientist.

Our goal is to make sure that everyone understands that psychology is the science of behavior, cognition, and emotion. Everyone should recognize psychology as a STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) discipline. Everyone should associate a psychologist with a scientist.
