Psychology Today is a general interest magazine published every two months in the United States. Founded in 1967 by Nicolas Charney, Ph.D, its intent is to make psychology literature more accessible to the general public. The magazine focuses on human behavior and covers a wide range of topics including psychology, neuroscience, relationships, sexuality, parenting, health (including from the perspectives of alternative medicine), work, and the psychological aspects of current affairs.

The magazine's website features therapy and health professionals directories and hundreds of blogs written by a wide variety of psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, medical doctors, anthropologists, sociologists, and science journalists. Its current editor-in-chief is Kaja Perina.

It has a circulation of 301,779, and claims over 14 people view each copy. In recent years while many magazines have suffered in readership declines, Adweek noted Psychology Today's 36 percent increase in number of readers. From June 2010 to June 2011, it was the second top consumer magazine by newsstand sales.

Its content is geared toward an audience interested in pop psychology,[citation needed]. The publication is endorsed by the National Board for Certified Counselors, which promotes subscriptions to it and offers professional credit for a small fee and assigned assessment for each article read.
