New Body Language Website

I had originally planned just to have a body language section on the All About psychology website but such is the scope and range of this fascinating topic it soon became clear that it needed a dedicated website to do justice to all the things we intend to cover.

I say we because I am extremely fortunate to be developing the website in collaboration with Craig-James Baxter. Craig is a master trainer in reading advanced micro expressions and is one of the most viewed body language decoders in YouTube’s history, having complied nearly 100 body language analysis videos featuring celebrities, politicians, musicians and high profile criminology cases.

So, if you're interested in learning all about body language head over to the new Body Language Website which already has plenty of information and resources available: Including:

  • Body Language Analysis Videos
  • Body Language Guides
  • Body Language Tips
  • Body Language Q & A
  • Body Language Articles
  • And that's just the beginning, we've got some amazing things lined-up, such as exclusive interviews with some of the leading body language experts in the world.

    I really hope you enjoy exploring our new website which you can access via the following link.

    Psychology Book of The Month

    The psychology book of the month for May is:

    Critical Thinking For Psychology: A Student Guide By Mark Forshaw

    psychology book of the month may 2012

    Book Description

    Critical thinking is taught at all universities, often put forward by lecturers as the key skill that can most dramatically improve a student’s understanding of a course and transform their writing. It pervades research methods teaching, critical psychology, and a range of other core curriculum elements, in exactly the same way that critical thinking pervades any discipline, and indeed, life generally.

    But what is it, exactly, and how can we apply it specifically to the field of psychology? In his relaxed and accessible style, Mark Forshaw takes modern real-world examples from psychology and everyday life to lighten the learning of critical thinking, explaining what it entails, why it is important, and how it can be applied to this fascinating field of study.
