Helping People Improve Their Lives
Psychologists use scientific research to better understand how people learn, interpret events and make decisions. They then translate that knowledge into techniques to help people make smarter choices in their daily lives.
Based on a deep knowledge of how lifestyles are affected by factors related to biology, mental processes, and social relationships and interactions, psychologists identify and help people overcome the obstacles that inhibit them from making better choices, from exercising more or working more efficiently to using technology safely. Psychologists use psychological science to help people tap into their potential and help them perform at an optimal level.
