It all started in print. In 1967, Nicholas Charney founded Psychology Today; he was keen to bring psychology to the masses. And he succeeded. By 1981, the magazine boasted a circulation of more than 1 million copies.

Then as now, Psychology Today was known for its authoritative translational science writing, inviting individuals and luminaries in the field of psychology to write about their own work and that of others in a way that is accessible to lay readers. The concepts of “groupthink” and “six degrees of separation” were introduced in the pages of Psychology Today, and eminent psychiatrists and psychologists from Viktor Frankl to Carl Rogers and Albert Ellis have been featured.

The magazine has received numerous awards for both editorial and design, and is published six times a year. It is archived on this site from 1992 onwards. publishes content written by clinicians, experts and researchers from across the fields of behavior and psychology. The site includes a Diagnosis Dictionary, which is a comprehensive guide to diagnosable conditions; hundreds of commonly used and need-to-know psychology Basics, a full overview of Therapy Types, and comprehensive content Centers dedicated to subjects from ADHD to Parenting.
