The Library is currently running trials of two databases from the American Psychological Association (APA) through November 20th. A description and link for each is below. Please contact the library liaison for your department with any feedback you have about these products.

PsycTESTS is a research database that provides access to many full-text psychological tests, measures, scales, and other assessments as well as descriptive and administrative information for each. A wide variety of test types are included in the database including achievement and aptitude tests, intelligence tests, tests of cognitive functioning, occupational tests, personality tests, and more.  Records include information on the scope of the test, test implementation, a high-level overview of the test’s development, and reliability and validity data.

PsycTHERAPY is a database of therapy demonstration videos specifically developed to enable viewers to observe how therapists spontaneously employ different approaches and techniques in practice. At launch, PsycTHERAPY’s more than 300 videos provide illustrative examples from nearly 100 of the most renowned therapists in North America at work with participants (including individuals, couples, and families) via different approaches with persons facing an array of psychological challenges.
