Word Root Exercise: Psych/o

This worksheet on the Greek word root psych/o–which means mind, soul, and mental process–takes students through a series of words that grow from this very productive root in English.

Do I need to say that anyone considering a career in mental health services in particular, and healthcare in general, should know this root? They’ll  need it to understand fully the meanings of psychologist and psychiatrist.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
