Branches of modern psychology

Modern psychology is a whole complex of scientific disciplines, many of which claim to be considered independent sciences. Various authors count up to one hundred branches of psychology. These scientific disciplines are at different stages of development, associated with various areas of human practice. The core of modern psychology is general psychology, which studies the most general laws, laws, and mechanisms of the psyche.

The most important psychological discipline has become the history of psychology, the focus of which is the historical process of the formation and development of psychological knowledge.

Numerous branches of psychology stand out for various reasons.

1) specific activity (labor psychology, medical, educational psychology, art psychology, sports psychology, etc.);

2) development {animal psychology, comparative psychology; developmental psychology, child psychology, etc.);

3) sociality, human relations to society (social psychology, personality psychology, group psychology, class psychology, ethnopsychology, etc.).

In recent years, our country has been developing intensively practical psychology.
The specificity of practical psychology is that it is not objective, but objective. She is more focused on a holistic personality profile, and more uses descriptions and typologies.

Currently, there are no complete classifications of psychological branches. Psychology is a young science that is in the process of intensive development, therefore new areas are constantly emerging in it, which leads to the emergence of new industries.
