If you have read the what is psychology page, you'll know that there are multiple and often competing levels of explanation when it comes to understanding behavior.
The aim of this page, therefore, is to try and group different types of psychology into meaningful categories. This page will also act as a hub page for anybody looking for quality information on a particular branch of psychology, or topic area within psychology.
All the different types of psychology listed on this page will be placed in one of three categories. These categories are designed to help people understand the context in which a particular psychology topic is likely to be encountered. As such, they should neither be seen as definitive, nor exhaustive.
