Psychology is the study of the mind, human experience and behavior. Psychologists spend an average of 7.2 years, in addition to their undergraduate college degree, in education and training. Psychologists are trained to help people cope more effectively with life problems, using techniques based on best available research and their clinical skills and experience, and taking into account the person's unique values, goals and circumstances.

The American Psychological Association (APA), located in Washington, D.C., is the world's largest association of psychologists, with nearly 130,000 researchers, educators, clinicians, consultants and students as its members. APA works to advance psychology as a science and profession and as a means of promoting health, education and human welfare.
