Derived from the Greek words psykhé (soul, mind) and logos (reason, knowledge), Psychology is the science that studies the psychism and seeks to understand the human being in its complexity, that is, a being whose psychic dimension is constructed by biological phenomena and social, subjectivity being a biopsychosocial construction.
The psychologist seeks to intervene with individuals, groups and institutions in order to promote well-being, personal, collective and institutional development.
