Originally featured in the 11-20-2015 Scout Report, The Psych Show has continued to produce entertaining and informative videos on psychology, including dozens of videos on mental health.
Psychology, the study of mind and behavior, is both an academic discipline and applied science. Though the subject is woven inextricably into every aspect of modern life, from psychotherapy to advertising, few people take the time to understand the foundations of this important discipline. Dr. Ali Mattu, a senior clinical psychologist at the Columbia University Clinic for Anxiety and Related Disorders, is seeking to change that with The Psych Show, a fun-filled, fast-paced YouTube channel. Here readers will find episodes dedicated to the psychology behind New Year's resolutions, nostalgia, and why diversity in media matters, among many other topics.
