Research into visual imagery lies at the core of Suler’s work. He has written extensively on such topics as the role of visual images in dreams, meditation, creativity, emotions, psychotherapy, personal growth, and online communication.
As a founder of cyberpsychology, he was the first psychologist to engage in an intensive ethnographic study of one of the original avatar communities, The Palace, where he pioneered the study of how people use visual images to express their identities and interact socially with others.
He also was the first psychologist to undertake a comprehensive ethnographic study of Flickr, one of the largest online photo-sharing communities.
In his courses on film, psychotherapy, states of consciousness, and psychological testing, Suler emphasizes the importance of visual images in the expression and transformation of the human psyche.
