Welcome to the (re)launch of Singapore Psychologist – SPS’ quarterly flagship magazine first published in the 1980s!
With a unique Singaporean flavour, Singapore Psychologist is SPS’ strategic effort to initiate important conversations and discourse surrounding psychology here at home.
We hope our articles will inspire ideas and meaningful conversations for you and those with whom you share your thoughts. As we aim towards making psychology literature more accessible to the general public, we also seek to celebrate the original works of both students and professionals alike.
Read on and get psyched!
In this issue, we delve into our personal relationship with feeling “okay”. We discuss the signs of not feeling “okay”, how to cope when we are in this state, coming to a place of acceptance in our sense of self and achievements and much more.
In this issue, we examined the complex relationship between humans and technology. We discuss the similarity between technology and the human brain, how we can use technology to benefit our mental and physical health and much more.

In this issue, we showcase the psychological research into love and relationships (e.g., romantic love, neuroscience of love, attachment styles and love) and hope to elucidate some lay theories and misconceptions about love.
