Some psychologists practice in hospitals while others opt to choose a more relaxed, private setting. A lot of schools also employ psychologists on site. You will also find psychologists in rehabilitation centers and other care centers. In many big organizations, psychologists are hired to look after the mental well-being of employees. The field is psychology is also very active in research aside from practice.

Different types of psychology can be classified as biological psychology, behavioral psychology, cognitive psychology, social psychology, psychoanalysis and academic psychology. It is not just the science behind the mind, but the science behind our conscious and unconscious thoughts.
