Eye on Psi Chi: Fall 1999
International Symbols
for Psychologists

Mitchell M. Handelsman, University of Colorado at Denver
Joseph J. Palladino, University of Southern Indiana

The rise of global communication along with corresponding decreases in literacy have led to a movement away from language-based communication to symbol-based approaches. Some of us are old enough to remember when "WALK" and "DON'T WALK" signs were replaced with the stick figure and the hand. We've all seen restrooms and olympic sports identified by drawings rather than words. These new symbols make it easier to identify what exactly we're watching on TV, and prevent serious embarrassment in restaurants.

In an effort to popularize a range of psychological specialties like sports and other endeavors, we provide for your consideration the following "international symbols" for psychologists.



Clinical Psychologist



Comparative Psychologist


















Cross-Cultural Psychologist



Developmental Psychologist

Gestalt Psychologist


















Industrial Psychologist



Media Psychologist

Social Psychologist
