Applied Psychology is the only psychology

The question presented in the conclusion of this class, whether social research good or bad, made me stop and think. I cannot come up with a reason why it is bad. In fact, I think that all of psychology is based on social psychology. Psychology aims at seeking to understand behavior, and creating interventions that have a positive effect and outcome on people. The reason why the field of psychology is ongoing and continuous is because we are not complacent on research that has been done and are constantly seeking to understand more. This starts from a desire to understand human behavior, which is the social factor of psychology, in all umbrellas of psychology. With out that desire of trying to understand human behavior, psychology wouldn’t exist. So, from that standpoint, applied psychology should be credited with creating psychology in general. All other forms of research are based off of an applied social psychology approach. Awesome job applied social psychology!
