I believe everything we need to know about psychology, human
relationships and living an effective life can be summed up in four words.
Think of any human problem, conflict,
struggle or difficulty. Understanding these four words and the components and principles that underlie them will guide
you in a direction that promotes health and effectiveness while leading to the development of potential and fulfillment.
“Practical Psychology: What Works and Makes Sense” is being developed as an app and website to help us
understand and apply these four words to a wide range of situations and concerns. Unlike a book, which has a fixed,
linear format, this project is being designed to be interactive and responsive to different needs, interests, and circumstances
as well as new information.

I have started uploading material for my new website and book to the Practical Psychology Tab and plan to regularly

Update October 19, 2014
