2.The Letter Section, where readers are able to write in with views to the Editor, resulting in some fiesty debate and titilating argument.3.The Research Section examines current research programmes and the implications of the findings, recent areas have included:
4.The Students section exists to look at aspects of student life relative to psychology under-graduates and post graduates giving informative ideas and constructive help.In addition there is always a good selection of advertising features detailing courses available across the country from full-time to part time and distance study.
The magazine itself is accompanied by a memorandum booklet of vacancies within the field of psychology, again this covers the whole of the country and all the different fields.This magazine is despatched free to members of the British Psychology Scoiety, for non-members the cost is £66 per annum.
Personally I consider this publication an absolute must for anyone working, studying, or with a keen interest in psychology. It is always producing original and innovative ideas on a host of subjects and never stops in its search for the truth in psychological fields ~ a brilliant read.
