Welcome to whatispsychology.net. My name is Alexander Burgemeester and I am a Psychologist living in the Netherlands, Amsterdam. I like to write about educational topics and that is why I started this website. I studied at the University of Amsterdam and I finished my Psychology degree in 2006. My Minor was was Clinical Psychology and my Major was Neuropsychology which makes me a Clinical-NeuroPsychologist. I have worked for 4 years as a Psychologist in different settings and I am specialized in working with the Elderly (Dementia and related) and Drugs & Alcohol related addicted people.
What is this website About?
People often don’t know what psychology is. It is my intention to educate people about psychology, what it is and what it isn’t. Psychology is everywhere, it’s in the supermarket, at school, in the pub and even at your own dinner table when you are having breakfast with your family. All interaction between people is based on psychology. Being aware of this might help you to increase your locus of control and live a happier life. I hope that the articles on this website will help those who read it. Please be aware of our disclaimer, the content on this website is only intended for educational purposes and should never be used to diagnose yourself or someone else. If you believe there might be something wrong with you than always consult your psychiatrist or physician.
I believe that this website will write down what psychology is with the use of normal (easy) languages skipping the difficult and complicated terms. If you have questions than please use the comments to comment on the articles. I will be happy to answer any additional questions you have.
