It seems like everyone is going green these days, and the field of psychology is no exception. Ecopsychology is a relatively new term, coined in 1992 by the historian Theodore Roszak in his book, The Voice of the Earth. It draws on concepts from ecology, psychology, and philosophy and concerns the intimate connection between humans and nature.
Patricia Duggan has a Masters in Psychology and has been practicing for 11 years. She maintains the site Psychology Degree. She writes about various subjects within the psychology field.

Hello everyone! It’s certainly been a long time.
I’ll admit that a few months ago I was unsure about whether to continue with this blog. I was spending hours on posts which ultimately reached an audience of about 10 people a day – often repeat readers. With university commitments, it became hard to uphold an academic blog so I decided to push it aside in favour of other work.
Well, what a surprise I had when I returned today!
It would seem that I have jumped from about 30,000 all time hits to nearly 80,000 in a matter of months, with my blog attracting around 700 hits per day the last week. I can’t express how happy it’s made me; if anything, it’s “re-motivated” me. I’ll continue writing posts as soon as I can.
Thanks again, it’s always the readers that make the blog.
A wise man once said “there are three things that are 100% certain in life:
- We will be born
- We will die one day
- Psychology students will have a horrible amount of essays to write during their studies.”
And you know what? He was right!
In this blog post, I aim to provide a few pointers towards writing an essay that will get you a first. Of course, this will likely apply to any college students as well, but you usually require much less work at A-Level standard than degree level.
So, what exactly makes a brilliant psychology essay?
Psychology is an amazingly diverse subject, with roots in many fields. Of course, with this diversity, you can expect a very diverse range of pay between them all. This post will show the highest paid jobs in psychology, in order from highest to lowest.
Please note: The pay for psychology jobs vary depending on where you live! This list ‘mixes’ the pay between jobs in the UK and USA. However, all these are subject to change depending on geography and general changes over time.
Read on to find out which jobs will bring in some serious cash!
I hope you’re finding all the information on this blog useful.
In the next few weeks, I’m going to introduce new “subscriber only” posts. These will be highly academic articles, complete with full references and extra reading. They will be password protected, which means only subscribers will have the required password to unlock them.
This is an effort to encourage people to subscribe, as I get loads of views but only have FIVE subscribers! I will likely release at least one of these locked articles a month, but they will be very useful (I hope…!).
Subscribing is 100% free, and you will never have to pay for any of the articles. You will not be spammed; e-mails will only be sent to you when new posts are released (these are automated).
Hopefully this will appeal! To subscribe, simply look at the “subscribe to keep updated” section on the bar to the right.
Sorry about the lack of new posts over the past week.
University work has been very demanding, as deadlines are fast approaching.
However, as of tomorrow, all my assignments are finished for the summer.
Blogging will resume on Friday 23rd April, as normal.
Thanks for understanding, and thanks for all the new readers.
If you’re wondering why I’ve posted on a Tuesday, it’s because this is an update. The next Psychology post will be tomorrow at 4pm.

Welcome to Psycho Hawks.
This blog does not concern the mental well-being of an avian variety.
I do not discuss birds at all, if I’m perfectly honest (and if I do, it’ll be in Comparative Psychology).
I’m sure you’ve guessed, this blog is an insight into the most fascinating subject going: Psychology.
I will try to keep the information as interesting as possible, as I’m aiming for this to be used more as a “good read” than an academic source for people also studying the subject. However, the information here will always be factual – and if not, I will make sure you know the source or evidence is unreliable.
All in all, I believe this blog will benefit students after more information; newbies to Psychology who want a little taster in the world of Psychology; and maybe even people very experienced in the field.
Why am I blogging about this?
I have a massive fascination for Psychology. I am a BSc Psychology student at Staffordshire University, UK. I’ve got an A2 level in Psychology also, and have always loved the subject. The subject matter is so broad, you could spend a lifetime finding everything out. There must have been a time you looked at something and gone “no way!”; for example, did you know that blind people dream as well? Or that you will never dream of something you don’t know about? That random person you kissed in your dream? That’ll be someone that you saw in the high-street, but didn’t even register consciously. You perceived them, stored the image of their face, and recalled that face in a dream. Weird, huh?
To conclude, I hope this offers whatever you’re looking for.
Please feel free to leave feedback, because this won’t get any better unless you tell me what I’m doing right/wrong.
