According to IranianPsychologist.org, you can usually work through problems yourself or with the support of family and friends. Sometimes, you may need someone with special skills, training, and experience to help you—a professional you can count on. That is when you may want to talk to a licensed clinical psychologist. Iranian psychologists assess, diagnose, and treat individuals suffering from psychological distress and mental illness. Persian psychologists also perform psychotherapy and develop treatment plans. Also, Iranian psychologists play a significant role in promoting healthy behavior, preventing diseases, and improving patients’ quality of life. They often work in hospitals, mental health clinics, and private practice.
Iranian psychologists as behavioral health providers play a major role in understanding how biological, behavioral, and social factors influence health and illness. They are equipped with training, skills, and knowledge to understand how basic behavioral and cognitive processes prepare the body to develop dysfunctions. On the other hand, Iranian psychologists are trained to perceive how these behavioral and cognitive functions are altered, the factors that contribute to their alteration, and how these dysfunctions are diagnosed and treated. In dealing with such problems, Persian psychologists are also trained and skilled to use several psychological, psych diagnostic, and psychotherapeutic techniques that help and affect individuals’ abilities to function in diverse settings and roles. Also, they help people to modify their behavior and lifestyle to prevent and recover from health problems.
History of Psychology
Before science, psychology was untested. People assumed evil spirits caused all psychological problems. Over the centuries, mental illness has been attributed to everything from a “badness of spirit” (Aristotle) and a “humoral imbalance” (Galen) to autoerotic fixation (Freud) and the weakness of the hierarchical state of the ego (Jung). The roots of psychology go back to the ancient Greeks. Psychology is a term derived from two Greek words that translate to life explanation, making it an important element of daily life.
What are the Differences between a Psychologist and Therapist?
An Iranian psychologist will diagnose a mental disorder or problem and determine what is best for the patient’s care. A psychologist often works in tandem with a psychiatrist, who is also a medical doctor, and can prescribe medication if it is determined that medication is necessary for a patient’s treatment. Psychologists can do research, which is a significant contribution academically and clinically, to the profession.
A therapist is a broader umbrella term for professionals who are trained—and often licensed—to provide various treatments and rehabilitation for people. Therapists can be psychoanalysts, marriage counselors, social workers, and life coaches, among other specialties. A therapist’s goal is to help patients make decisions and clarify their feelings to solve problems. Therapists provide support and guidance while helping patients make effective decisions within the overall structure of support. When selecting a therapist, their education, licensing, and professional credentials should be essential considerations.
