About Jonas Lauren Norr
Jonas Lauren Norr studied psychology for about 10 years, and he still enjoys learning new things. As a teenager, he was fascinated by how our brains worked and wanted to understand the human mind better. So when he got into college, he decided to study psychology; and this was one of his favorite subjects. After graduating from college, the first thing he did was enroll in a PhD program in clinical psychology. While working on a Masters degree, Jonas Lauren Norr had a chance to intern with some psychologists researching the effects of stress on children. This allowed him to directly apply what he learned in school to a real-life scenario.
