The British Psychological Society has created a Timeline of significant dates the History of Psychology (with a few “interesting world events” thrown in for good measure) covering the period 1840 – 1999 (I’m assuming nothing much of interest has happened in Psychology since the Millennium? I could, of course, be wrong) that could be put to good use as a resource for something like Approaches to Psychology.

The format is simple but effective:

• click on a “psychological event” link and up pops a little box with a one-line description of – and picture to illustrate – the event.

• clicking a “find out more” link expands the information to a paragraph or three.

• click a “further information” link and you’re presented with links to pdf files, websites and video files (such as Ted Talks).
