WHAT IS PSYCHOLOGY?

Ever wondered if prison really does change criminal behaviour?

Or why some people conform?

Or perhaps if the experiences you had before the age of five really do shape the person you are today?

Psychology has been defined as the science of mind and behaviour. Essentially, Psychology is all about people.  We are all amateur psychologists, every time we try and work out why someone acted the way they did or try to predict how someone might behave or react.  Psychology tries to answer these questions.  By investigating them in a more scientific manner.
