What is Psychology and What Do Psychologists Do?


Psychology is the science of behavior and mind. Psychology is an emerging subject in the field of health sciences.

With the advancement in imaging technologies, there is a specific focus on diseases of the brain and their treatment.

Previously these disorders and patients suffering from these disorders were treated very harshly and no attention was given to their treatment but now people have started to recognize mental illness as the same as physical illness and hence approach to these disorders has dramatically improved.

Furthermore, there is renewed focus towards different addictions and their remedies.

Hence psychologists have gained immense importance during the last decade or so.

Psychologists are doctors or therapists who are involved in the detection, diagnosis, treatment, and counseling of patients suffering from mental health disorders.

These disorders include schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder etc. You can enter this field by two means. One way is to pursue an MBBS degree and after that completing specialization (FCPS) in Psychiatric Medicine.

In order to do this, you must choose psychiatry as one of the fields during your house job rotations. The other way is to pursue a graduate degree in clinical psychology and after that pursuing masters and Ph.D. in this field.

The difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist is that psychiatrist have the permission to prescribe drugs used for the treatment of mental disorders whereas a clinical psychologist is more involved with behavioral therapy and does not enjoy the privilege of prescribing medicines.

You must have a likable personality because patients need to trust you with issues that they hide from even their family members.

Apart from that you must be a good listener and should have a nonjudgmental attitude as in this way your patients are more likely to trust you.
