Psychology concerns the study of human behaviour, as well as the factors that may influence human behaviour. Professional psychologists use scientifically established processes to help investigate a range of personal and social issues. Despite popular misconceptions, not all psychologists are directly concerned with personal problems. Many work in positions where they create social change to improve or prevent human problems; provide assistance in evaluating and correcting learning difficulties; study accident prevention; design educational material; promote healthy behaviours; research how people function in different environments and situations; assist clients to live happier, healthier lives; and design and implement recruitment and selection strategies.
