1Ashley Garside GEOG-1982 Chris McMorran May 30, 2005 Final Reaction Paper #3 How Psychology Relates to Geography Psychology is a biopsychosocial science that studies behavior from both biological and social perspectives.

I like to understand what is happening in all situations and I am always the one in my group of friends to try to help or solve the problem. I believe that if the mental health of the country is more good than bad then the entire well being of all society will follow suit. In the future I am not sure that I want to be a psychologist but I definitely want to help with the mental health of all people in general. This could entail working at a police station as the Psych-consult, or at the hospital in a similar position. Psychology could lead to social work or even student counseling. There are many possibilities for a career having the major of psychology and I believe that this is the reason I have chosen it. Whereas geography is the study of the land and culture of the people that occupy that land. There are several different ways that psychology has relates to geography.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
