roots of AllPsych go back to 1992 when Dr.
Chris Heffner, as a graduate student in psychology,
started a small website to assist with data collection
for research purposes and dissemination of academic
material. The site began to grow as
the Internet became more widely used and soon we were
getting requests for information in many different areas
of psychology and mental health. As such, new
articles and features were added to the site over the
years. In the summer of
1999 the move to redefine the mission and goals of the
website led to the beginning of AllPsych Online.
At that time the education material was revised, new
material was added, and we moved to the current location.
has had many face lifts since 1999 and the
information provided in its pages has grown
ten-fold. Today AllPsych Online remains one of the most
comprehensive psychology websites on the Internet.
We are referenced by universities
all over the world and cited by professional
organizations and college textbooks. We are proud to offer educational
material on many topics related to psychology and will
continue to do our best to help students stay informed, up to date, and
interested in the study of psychology.
