Psychology is the science of behavior and mind. It includes the study of conscious and unconscious phenomena, as well as feeling and thought. It is an academic discipline of immense scope. Psychologists assess, diagnose, and treat the psychological problems and behavioral dysfunctions resulting from, or related to, physical and mental health.

He owns an “old world” letterpress printing press manufactured in 1886 and revived his interest in printing after many years, when his daughter asked him to print her wedding invitations.
