What is Psychology?

Psychology is actually the scientific study of the mind and behavior. The word psychology comes from the Greek word psyche, which means the human soul. Many ancient cultures debated on the nature of the human mind, soul, and spirit. Wilhelm Wundt (1832–1920) was a German scientist who was the first person to be referred to as a psychologist. In 1879, Wilhelm Wundt founded the first laboratory dedicated exclusively to psychological research in Leipzig, Germany.

What Do Psychologists Do?

Psychologists are doctoral degree (PhD or PsyD) experts in psychology.

The job of an Iranian psychologist demands learning, evaluating, diagnosing, and treating diverse sorts of psyche processes. Psychologists evaluate, diagnose and treat patients suffering from psychological problem and mental illness.

Psychologist VS Psychiatrist

Psychologist and psychiatrist both work in the same general field of counseling and studying human behavior.

Basically, a Psychiatrist is considered a doctor while a psychologist is not. This is because all psychiatrists are trained medical doctors and can process medical treatments and prescribe drugs and medication, but the majority of the psychologists can’t do this.

Psychologists mostly focus on psychotherapy and treating emotional and mental suffering in patients with behavioral intervention.

Neuropsychologists study the relation between the brain and behavior. They often work in stroke and head injury programs.

Clinical Social Workers

CSWs do the same thing as psychologist and psychiatrist, though they are not the same.

They are mental wellness experts who have received a master’s degree in “social work”. Much like psychologists they are unable to prescribe medication but they can evaluate whether the patient requires it.

Also, they can refer their clients to psychiatrists for further examination.

CSWs usually receive their license after completing two years of training in their field. CSWs can be involved in direct therapy with patients in private practice.

Difference Between LCSW and a Clinical Psychologist?

They are qualified to diagnose behavioral disorders, mental illnesses and personal problems. Educational requirements is different for LCSWs and clinical psychologists, but they both require a graduate degree and field experience to work as a licensed professional counselor (LPC).

Also financially clinical psychologists earn significantly more than LCSWs. LCSWs usually need to earn a master’s in social work degree, and to do supervised work in the field to become licensed while clinical psychologists are required to have a doctorate in psychology to practice in a clinics.

How to Improve Your Mental Health?

Good mental health is more than just the absence of a mental disorder, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety. Researches show that people with severe mental illness have reduced life expectancy.

A person who is mentally healthy has a state of well-being and is able to cope with life’s normal stresses, can be productive and is also able to make a contribution to the community.

  • ●   Take care of your body. Physical health can improve your mental health.
  • ●   Make sure to have enough sleep. Researchers believe sleep deprivation has a significant negative effect on your mood.
  • ●   Write down your goals and the steps you need to take to achieve that goal. Decide what you want to achieve academically, professionally and personally. It has been proved that you will have a great sense of accomplishment and self-worth as you progress toward your goal.
  • ●   Have a daily exercise plan, whether it’s jogging or hitting the gym. Your body releases stress-relieving and mood-boosting endorphins before and after you work out, which is why exercise is a powerful antidote to stress, anxiety, and depression. To get the most benefit, try to have at least 30 minutes of exercise daily, and preferably outdoors.
  • ●   Talk about your feelings. Talking can be a way to cope with the problems you’ve been experiencing or thinking about in your head. Even being listened to can help you feel supported and less alone.
  • ●   Take time to laugh. Hang out with family and friends and watch a comedy show or check out cute videos online. Researchers show laughter helps reduce anxiety.
  • ●   Quit drinking alcohol. Excessive alcohol consumption can disrupt our body’s ability to rest, resulting in our body needing to work harder to break down the alcohol in our system. This interference of alcohol with sleep patterns can lead to reduced energy levels. Alcohol also depresses the central nervous system, and this can make our moods fluctuate.
  • ●   Eat healthy and nutritious meals. An unhealthy diet can take a toll on your brain and mood, disrupt your sleep, reduce your energy level, and weaken your immune system. On the other hand a healthy diet, low in sugar and rich in healthy fats, can give you more energy, improve your sleep and mood, and help you to look and feel your best.
  • ●   Focus on the good things in your life. Positive thinking can improve your mental and physical health in many ways.
  • ●   Manage your stress. Try to change or leave situations causing you stress. Learn relaxation methods to cope with stress. These could include deep breathing, meditation, and exercise.
  • ●   Volunteer your time and energy to help someone else. Research shows that being helpful to others has a beneficial effect on how you feel about yourself. Being helpful and kind is a great way to build self-esteem.

Persian Psychologists

Iranians usually seek out psychologists of their own origins since it is easier to talk about your problems with a person from your own culture, religion and similarities!

The language barrier is an extremely difficult and sensitive situation to broach, especially in the field of psychology. In your encounter with your psychologist or therapist, you share your most intimate feelings and experiences that’s why it’s important to choose an Iranian psychologist.

When you talk with a Farsi speaking psychologist, you feel less vulnerable and more understood!

Foreign-born patients seek out foreign-born therapists. Researches show that foreign born patients would appreciate the fact that the therapist is familiar with the challenges of living as an immigrant in a foreign country.

Searching for a good Iranian Psychologist

At some point in our lives, each of us may feel overwhelmed with stress, marital problems, addiction, anxiety, and anger management and may need help of a professional dealing with our problems.

All Iranian psychologists provide mental health services. But each brings different training, experience, insights, and character to the table; but not all of them are the right choice for you and your needs. Choosing a mental health professional to see is much like choosing a doctor.

  • ●   The web is a great resource for locating and learning more about local Iranian psychologists near you.
  • ●   You can ask friends or family members who are in therapy, whether they like their therapist. If they do, find out what it is they like about them and ask your friends to ask their psychologist for referral lists.
  • ●   Ask a doctor you already work with and trust. These doctors are well connected in the community and refer to each other all the time.
  • ●   Once you know what sort of stuff you want to share in therapy sessions and what is your primary problem, look for Iranian psychologists that specialize in those areas. Ask whether the psychologist has had experience in dealing with your type of problems. Some psychologists specialize in working with children or families, adults or older adults.
  • ●   When choosing an Iranian psychologist, almost all people have an instinctive idea on gender they would prefer to work with. So while searching for a therapist online, keep the gender you prefer in mind.
  • ●   Search where the Iranian psychologist is located, what hours are available for your treatment, and if the therapist will see you in an emergency. Choose a therapist that is near you; this will make it easier for you to schedule visits and to arrive on time.
  • ●   Don’t forget to verify what types of accreditation your insurance accepts, what the diagnoses need to be, what kind of documentation you need, and how many sessions it covers. Then ask your Iranian psychologist for a cash rate, because deductibles and other costs can, surprisingly, make insurance more expensive.
  • ●   At the end make a short-list Iranian psychologists that you’re thinking of seeing, either based on their proximity to your home or office, their office hours, their compatibility with your health insurance, or recommendations by others.

And finally, after you’ve found an Iranian psychologist that you feel comfortable around and can connect with, it’s important to be responsible for your own progress.
