Introducing Real World ResearchWe all have theories about how the world works. And in psychology, researchers spend a lot of time testing these hypotheses to see how true they are. Wouldn’t it be cool to have someone who takes things from the real world and see what the research says about them?

Indeed, I thought so too, so I’m happy to bring you Real World Research with Sophia Dembling. Sophia will blog here about what the research says about all sorts topics delving into human behavior, psychology, why we often feel the way we do after something happens — you name it. While the specific topic may vary, the focus will be on how research is applied to the real world.

Sophia Dembling left the daily newspapers in 1994 to freelance and immediately took to the solitary lifestyle of the freelance writer. Sophia is author of The Yankee Chick’s Survival Guide to Texas and co-author of The Making of Dr. Phil: The Straight-Talking True Story of Everyone’s Favorite Therapist and I Can Still Laugh: Stories of Inspiration and Hope from Individuals Living with Alzheimer’s. You can read more about Sophia’s background here.

Please head on over to her blog now, Real World Research, and give her a warm Psych Central welcome!
