Guide to psychology resources at the UNT Libraries

Introduction to Psychology

Psychology is the scientific study of thinking, feeling, and behavior, and the application of this knowledge to address human problems, alleviate suffering, or enhance quality of life. The study of psychology may include research, clinical practice, counseling, various forms of therapy, teaching or professional training, and consultation with groups or organizations wanting to improve the health, well-being, productivity, or relationships of their members.
