The field of psychology is popular and diverse and our psychologist interviews are representative of that. Hear from a media psychologist about the unique task of understanding how the general public interacts with different forms of media, or learn what a real life forensic psychologist from the FBI does when he visits a crime scene. Hopefully, these unique interviews can both be interesting and exciting, and help you understand more about a certain career path that you want to start down. View psychologist experts...
