Class Project:

This class developed a video which highlights the beauty and importance of the field of psychology.  The video is used as an educational resource for educators, politicians, and the general public.  The class's goal was to capture the work that psychologists do as a profession and answer the question: "What/Who is a psychologist?"  This project also showcases the multiple talents of NYSPA membership.  To watch the video, click here.
