About Us

Psychology.org’s biggest draw has long been its extensive encyclopedia of people, publications and organizations at the forefront of psychotherapy, behavior analysis, research and education.

Founded in 1997 by Dr. William Palya, the vision for Psychology.org was to both centralize the best online psychology resources and publish original, innovative psychology scholarship.

Dr. Palya

The modern approach to Psychology is often labeled Behavior Analysis to differentiate it from the earlier more emotional or intuitive conceptualizations. Eventually all of psychology will be the practice of modern scientific methods. In the same way that chemistry changed alchemy’s way of looking at substances, Behavior Analysis changes the way we organize events in the world into those events which have been shown to best help us understand, predict, and repair problems in behavior.

Dr. Palya

While the site still serves as a reference in the discipline, in 2015 we set out in a somewhat new direction.

We refocused our efforts to promoting psychology as a field, explicitly addressing its role in modern medicine, the humanities and social and scientific research. We wanted to make a site that engaged with two audiences: prospective students considering an education in psychology and job seekers, be they recent grads or professionals looking to advance their careers or return to school.

As you explore the site, you will recognize our effort to not only address these audiences, but to really show visitors what it takes to move from the classroom to the workforce, whether that be to clinical care, private practice or a corporate consultancy.

We’re excited to be a part of the movement advancing public knowledge of psychology. At this pivotal moment in the history of the discipline, we’re confident psychology.org is poised to make a lasting difference.

Have questions about the recent changes to the site or any other elements of the site? The answer you’re looking for can likely be found in our site FAQ. Check back frequently for new psychology resources, and if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, please reach out to our team at contact@support.psychology.org or give us a call at 281-846-3051.

Advertising Policy

Some of the information on our site may come directly from client schools — or “Sponsored Schools” — from which we receive compensation for our services. In the interests of transparency, these schools will be accompanied by labels reading “Featured,” “Sponsored,” or something similar. In addition, the institutions themselves are responsible for confirming the accuracy and currentness of the information as we do not verify it independently prior to publication.

We make no guarantees as to the completeness of any school listings on our site, including those categorized by program, location, or other similar factors.
