Psychology is a vast and interesting field and is applicable in almost all instances which require social interaction. With each communication medium arises issues such as conflict which often needs resolution among other incidences. Psychology is the brain child for all other disciplines as well, since in order to work effectively, one needs to understand how others think and feel with which governs their actions.
While underrepresented in the Caribbean, Psychology is still awaiting its ‘big break’ as much more people become more knowledgeable as to the field and have a greater appreciation for it and how it can be incorporated into their daily lives. As a result, the heads of the field of Psychology within the Caribbean spectrum have created a Journal which showcases the recent research by the aspiring and professional psychologists alike.
