PROF. ERICK WILLIAMS is a full-time Professor of Psychology, family man, and imaginative explorer. As an Army brat, Erick was uprooted from Europe during his early adolescent years to face the cultural shock of east-coast pride exhibited in the American North-east. It’s was during this time that Erick cultivated his interest in deciphering the human psyche. Professor Erick has earned a B.A.. Psychology University of Maryland, M.A. Experimental psychology Hood College, and M.S. Counseling McDaniel College. Erick has devoted his life to providing guidance to those in need and to the curious mind. His love of new technology and the arts has allowed him to meld the best of academia with pure science fiction to push boundaries beyond psychology’s outer limits.
PsychologyPsychology is the study of behavior and mind. It is an academic discipline and an applied science which seeks to understand individuals and groups by establishing general principles and researching specific cases. In this field, a professional practitioner or researcher is called a psychologist and can be classified as a social, behavioral, or cognitive scientist. Psychologists attempt to understand the role of mental functions in individual and social behavior, while also exploring the physiological and biological processes that underlie cognitive functions and behaviors. Psychologists explore concepts such as perception, cognition, attention, emotion, intelligence, phenomenology, motivation, brain functioning, personality, behavior, and interpersonal relationships, including psychological resilience, family resilience, and other areas. Psychologists of diverse orientations also consider the unconscious mind. Psychologists employ empirical methods to infer causal and correlational relationships between psychosocial variables. In addition, or in opposition, to employing empirical and deductive methods, some—especially clinical and counseling psychologists—at times rely upon symbolic interpretation and other inductive techniques. Psychology has been described as a "hub science", with psychological findings linking to research and perspectives from the social sciences, natural sciences, medicine, humanities, and philosophy. While psychological knowledge is often applied to the assessment and treatment of mental health problems, it is also directed towards understanding and solving problems in several spheres of human activity. By many accounts psychology ultimately aims to benefit society. The majority of psychologists are involved in some kind of therapeutic role, practicing in clinical, counseling, or school settings. Many do scientific research on a wide range of topics related to mental processes and behavior, and typically work in university psychology departments or teach in other academic settings (e.g., medical schools, hospitals). Some are employed in industrial and organizational settings, or in other areas such as human development and aging, sports, health, and the media, as well as in forensic investigation and other aspects of law.
