Websites! (The Blog Post)

Reliable! Yes!

This particular website contains info about the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), the most trusted psychological reference book out there. Though it is not technically an online version of the DSM-IV, it does direct users to revisions and other resources that may be helpful.

The home website of NIDA, the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Mostly the science behind drug addiction and its effects on the body and mind. 

The American Psychiatric Association website. It differs from the APA website in that it focuses on psychiatric practices, such as prescriptions and medication.

The Association For Play Therapy, a resource for play therapists and those interested in the benefits of play therapy, which is defined by the website as "the systematic use of a theoretical model to establish an interpersonal process wherein trained play therapists use the therapeutic powers of play to help clients prevent or resolve psychosocial difficulties and achieve optimal growth and development."

An easy-to-navigate, oft-updated blog about art therapy. It links to various resources and articles, as well as a lengthy and helpful description of art therapy as a practice.

Unreliable! Oh no!

Do I really need to say anything?

One of many "ex-gay" ministries that believe homosexuality is an illness that can be cured.

Though I won't entirely discount parapsychology, I can't say I think it's the best reference for other matters of the mind.

The first sentence on this website is "psychology is a total waste of time." Seriously. Shut up.

Whoah. These aren't correct at ALL.
