Hi everyone, I'm a canadian highschool student and i'm looking for some advice.

I'm interested in fields related mostly to criminology and abnormal psychology, but i'm confused as to potential careers in those fields.

I love trying to figure out how people think, what they will do in certain situations, etc.

Any ideas for careers???

To be honest the closest I've come to finding a "match" is from watching Criminal Minds (lol.) but i'm fairly sure the job title "profiler" doesn't exist..and if it did it would be extremely limited and competitive.
I suppose a Detective/Special Agent is also really close.

Can anyone also recommend any University Courses? Or a series of Courses to get me where I want to be?

Links are appreciated

Hi all,

Just wanted to let everyone know about a free resource I founded called My Social Work Network (www.mysocialworknetwork.com). I'm sure all interested in psychology or sociology would find this site helpful. At My Social Work Network, you can create a professional profile, network with other social workers globally who share your interests (search social workers by location, expertise, degree, experience, school, or company), search thousands of social work jobs, post and browse resources, blog, and keep current on social work news -just to name a few features. We just added free volunteer/internship posts for those who are either looking to fill a position or for those who are seeking a position. You do not have to be a social worker to join, just bring your passion for your causes.

My hope is My Social Work Network will help our profession to better connect and mobilize so we can better fulfill our mission of social and economic justice for all. Feel free to check the site out and if you feel it adds value to the work we do, please help to spread the word.

Hi soc_psych ,

My thesis group is currently constructing a demographic questionnaire for our study on Internet usage. But our own Internet activities are mostly limited to e-mailing, blogging, chatting and research. So as you can see, it's a very biased (and we really want to avoid that when we finalize our questionnaire).

We thought it would be a good idea to ask real people rather than just simply limiting our basis for the information to printed and electronic journal articles and from our own experiences. (And I think this comm will take us more seriously and won't mistake us for bots if we reply with a "Thank you" to comments. (What is wrong with being polite and thanking people for contributing information?))

You only need to answer the question: What do you do on the Internet?

We would really appreciate your help and thanks in advance! =)

Greetings to all members of the community. I work in Moscow, Russian federation, in the social-psychological centre called Perekrestok (a crossroad, http://perekrestok.info) as a psychologist, social worker and a scientist. Our target group are adolescents who are in a difficult life situations, and their families. We collaborate with schools, adolescent departaments, courts etc. We plan to make a research of efficiency of our social-psychological work so I want you to ask about some researches related to the efficiency evaluation of social and psycho-social work. Which good scientific literature shall we read to understand the general context of this field?
Thank you and waiting for your answers.

Hi. I'm looking for feedback from other people interested in the social sciences on articles I'm writing on gender differences. I'm mostly focusing on psychological differences, but where those differences interact with medical and neurological differences is also discussed. For example, yesterday's article was about differences in sex drive and today's is about differences in itching. Any suggestions of communities that I could visit to look for feedback would be appreciated. Thanks for your help!

differenceblog is a daily feature in two parts: an article on the study of gender differences, and a commentary from my life in two genders.

Thoughts on the Andrea Yates case....?


I watched the E! True Hollywood Story about her today and was curious about what all of you thought of her story from the viewpoint of social and psychological understandings.

How do you think the use of the internet has changed the way we associate and socialize with one another? Are these changes positive or negative? How has this technology helped us and how has it hindered us?
