'The Student Psychologist'

The Student Psychologist is a new section of the site that will publish any psychology research investigations you care to send us. These should archive into a very useful resource, be great examples of 'best practice', and hopefully sow the seeds of a brilliant career in psychology for the student writer. And why not!

If you are at school, college, or university and would like your research investigation published in The Student Psychologist contact us at psychology@gerardkeegan.co.uk.

It is thus with immense pleasure that www.gerardkeegan.co.uk welcomes Ann-Marie Roy as the first of our student contributors to The Student Psychologist.

Helen says 'I am curious to how psychology can help people. I have always been interested in observing people, the way they act and behave (myself included) and thanks to psychology, I no longer need to say that I am nosey.'

Thanks for your Report Helen. Double thanks for allowing us to publish it with lecturer comments, which is of great benefit to us all.
