Anyone know of any websites that cover these topics, particularly in a way that is accesible to beginners? I’m interested in learning more about them in a non-classroom environment.
Psychology today is@klasy, science presented to the masses. That is, dumbed down, simplified, not critizied, and one sided.
It is based on proper psychology though, so it isnt that bad, atleast if you have some knowledge about psychology and can be sceptical. Buy a book (passer & smith for introduction) or more advanced for the topic you like, is my best advice.
Or you could go knee deep and start reading research articles..but its not adviced if you dont have any experience in this.
http://www.sciencedaily.com -> mind&brain for some of the news from psychology and neuroscience. Read the articles they use as source, and read the articles the article use as sources. :) Thats the hardcore way if you want past the beginners stuff. Wikipedia isnt half bad either when it comes to psychology. Read the wiki sources.
