  • Uniview Worldwide recently sent me a copy of a DVD of a lecture presentation by Dr Philip Zimbardo on the topic of a book he has recently published entitled “The Lucifer Effect”. In this lecture Zimbardo uses classic social psychology theories of conformity, prejudice, aggression, social influence and anti-social behaviour to try and understand why ‘good’ people can do ‘evil’ actions. To illustrate his arguments he uses examples of both historical and very recent events, including his experiences explaining the shocking behaviour of US soldiers at Abu Ghraib. It’s an interesting presentation which makes social psychology theories come alive as they are used to understand current events. If you are interested you can get the DVD from uniview.co.uk

  • Welcome to the new PsychNews blog! In this blog I plan to review resources on psychotherapy that I discover during my meanderings on the net. Hopefully this will grow into a useful collection of resources that psychotherapists can use to grow professionally. I would appreciate your help in discovering new resources so please feel free to drop me an email with the details of a psychotherapy related website that I have not reviewed.
