What is the newest break-through in psychology?

My daughter asked me, once we were talking about discoveries in astrophysics, if there were any break-throughs in the field of psychology recently. I could not answer it. There are a lot of books written, but what is new?

Psychology appears pretty dead today. In the 1930s it was a global science with elite scientists such as Freud. In fact, it was Kretchmer who discovered body type is connected with neurological profile. He even associated somatotype with psychological disorders.
Psychology today seems to ignore the source materials and travels the path of biology. Or, if not, it's about giving advice on family or sexual issues.
For me psychology is much more interesting than that. Reading Freudian concepts it became possible to interpret and explain behaviour. Some study on facial expression became very useful to me.
