Apologies!

I haven’t written on here since last year! I’ve been so busy with year two of my Psychology degree I haven’t had much time to update the blog. I have a whole summer free now though. There has been a lot of interest in the ‘Psychology meets art’ section, particularly in the subject of creative people with mental illnesses so I hope to bring a part two very soon along with an update on what it’s like to study Psychology and everything that is interesting me at the moment!

Thank you if you are reading this. Updates soon!

Autistic Spectrum Disorder

A follow up to my previous post about Autism. Here is another fascinating documentary that focuses on the importance of understanding that everyone views the world in different ways. Exclusive footage of the process of diagnosing Autism in the UK is also shown.

Note: I am not sure if this link will work for those outside the UK. Apologies.

Hello!

Just a quick introduction on what this blog is going to be about… I’m an undergraduate Psychology student from the UK and my plan is to discuss different topics and issues that I come across during my studies. This blog is really for my own benefit as it will encourage me explore the subject in a different way than I already do. If you enjoy browsing it then that is a bonus! Thanks for reading!
