The first meeting of the International Congress of Psychology sponsored by the International Union of Psychological Science took place in Paris, in August , amidst the World's Fair celebrating the centennial of the French Revolution.
William James was one of three Americans among the four hundred attendees. The International Congress continued to be held, at different locations in Europe, with wider international participation. University of Michigan psychologist Dorwin Cartwright reported that university researchers began large-scale propaganda research in —, and "the last few months of the war saw a social psychologist become chiefly responsible for determining the week-by-week-propaganda policy for the United States Government.
Freudian psychoanalysts were expelled and persecuted under the anti-Jewish policies of the Nazi Party , and all psychologists had to distance themselves from Freud and Adler.
This psychotherapy aimed to align suitable Germans with the overall goals of the Reich; as described by one physician: "Despite the importance of analysis, spiritual guidance and the active cooperation of the patient represent the best way to overcome individual mental problems and to subordinate them to the requirements of the Volk and the Gemeinschaft. Alexander Mitscherlich founded a prominent applied psychoanalysis journal called Psyche and with funding from the Rockefeller Foundation established the first clinical psychosomatic medicine division at Heidelberg University.
In , psychology was integrated into the required studies of medical students. Thus, university psychology departments trained large numbers of students, for whom positions were made available at schools, workplaces, cultural institutions, and in the military. An especial focus was pedology , the study of child development, regarding which Lev Vygotsky became a prominent writer.
Luria , and Aron Zalkind were denounced; Ivan Pavlov posthumously and Stalin himself were aggrandized as heroes of Soviet psychology. There emerged a new field called " engineering psychology " which studied mental aspects of complex jobs such as pilot and cosmonaut. Interdisciplinary studies became popular and scholars such as Georgy Shchedrovitsky developed systems theory approaches to human behavior.
Chinese psychologists were encouraged to focus on education and language learning, with the aspiration that education would enable modernization and nationalization.
John Dewey, who lectured to Chinese audiences in —, had a significant influence on this doctrine. Chinese psychologists elaborated on Lenin's model of a "reflective" consciousness, envisioning an "active consciousness" pinyin : tzu-chueh neng-tung-li able to transcend material conditions through hard work and ideological struggle. They developed a concept of "recognition" pinyin : jen-shih which referred the interface between individual perceptions and the socially accepted worldview failure to correspond with party doctrine was "incorrect recognition".
Most leading psychologists were educated in the United States, and the first concern of the Academy was re-education of these psychologists in the Soviet doctrines.
Child psychology and pedagogy for nationally cohesive education remained a central goal of the discipline.
Several associations including the Association of Black Psychologists and the Asian American Psychological Association have arisen to promote non-European racial groups in the profession.
It holds the Interamerican Congress of Psychology and had 1, members in year The European Federation of Professional Psychology Associations, founded in , represents 30 national associations with a total of , individual members.
At least 30 other international groups organize psychologists in different regions. Parapsychology, hypnotism, and psychism were major topics of the early International Congresses. But students of these fields were eventually ostractized, and more or less banished from the Congress in — Philosopher of science Thomas Kuhn 's critique implied psychology overall was in a pre-paradigm state, lacking the agreement on overarching theory found in mature sciences such as chemistry and physics.
Skeptics have suggested that personality, thinking, and emotion, cannot be directly measured and are often inferred from subjective self-reports, which may be problematic. Experimental psychologists have devised a variety of ways to indirectly measure these elusive phenomenological entities. Critics inside and outside the field have argued that mainstream psychology has become increasingly dominated by a "cult of empiricism" which limits the scope of its study by using only methods derived from the physical sciences.
Jean Grimshaw, for example, argues that mainstream psychological research has advanced a patriarchal agenda through its efforts to control behavior. Psychiatrists and neuropsychologists work at the interface of mind and body.
Key research topics in this field include comparative psychology , which studies humans in relation to other animals, and perception which involves the physical mechanics of sensation as well as neural and mental processing. From Phineas Gage to H. Soon after, Carl Wernicke identified a related area necessary for the understanding of speech.
For example, physiological psychologists use animal models, typically rats, to study the neural, genetic, and cellular mechanisms that underlie specific behaviors such as learning and memory and fear responses. The biopsychosocial model is an integrated perspective toward understanding consciousness, behavior, and social interaction.
It assumes that any given behavior or mental process affects and is affected by dynamically interrelated biological, psychological, and social factors. This perspective suggests that psychological adaptations evolved to solve recurrent problems in human ancestral environments. Evolutionary psychology offers complementary explanations for the mostly proximate or developmental explanations developed by other areas of psychology: that is, it focuses mostly on ultimate or "why?
