What is Clinical Psychology?

* Clinical psychology is a field of practice concerned with human functioning, be it human problems and their solutions, as well as the promotion of physical, mental, and social well-being.

* Clinical psychologists have varied training experiences and different areas of specialization (excerpt from the Canadian Psychological Association - CPA).

What is a psychological assessment?

A psychological assessment by a clinical psychologist involves detailed interviews with an individual and, when appropriate, his/her family and significant others to answer specific questions concerning the nature, severity, and causal factors of presenting problems. Assessment questions involve diagnosing a psychological problem, determining the extent and nature of emotional/intellectual damage following injury or stress, or identifying strengths and assets in individuals and their social contexts. Psychologists share the results of the assessment with the client and consider the client’s feedback. Treatment by Clinical Psychologists involves several psychotherapy approaches, such as behavioural, cognitive, interpersonal, family, and psychodynamic. Treatment may focus on reducing distress and symptoms of psychological disorders, improving coping skills and functioning, and promoting healthy lifestyles.

 

The people I have worked with have included:

* People whose current coping mechanisms are no longer effective in stressful situations

* Individuals constantly triggered by memories of traumatic experiences

* Individuals feeling sad or anxious

* People who have experienced trauma or abuse in childhood or adulthood

* Individuals with parenting challenges

* Families who want to improve their communication style

* Individuals with unresolved trauma and experiencing negative consequences in their lives
