Psychology Doctors (Psychologists)

The scientific study of mental functions and behaviours comes under Psychology. It aims to understand the role mental functions play in various individual and social behaviours. The specialists are known as psychologists. While exploring the role of mental functions the psychologists also take into account the physiological and neurobiological processes which could be reason behind such behaviours and functions.

Disorders and Conditions:


Psychologists have earned professional training and have learned various clinical skills which help people in coping with various life issues and mental health disorders. They are trained to conduct and then interpret the tests and assessments which help in knowing and diagnosing conditions and tell about the way of thinking of a person, why he feels and behaves in a particular way. Through these tests the
psychologist evaluates intellectual skills, cognitive strength and weaknesses, personality traits and the neuropsychological functioning.

Some common types of therapy are cognitive, behavorial, cognitive-behavorial, interpersonal, humanistic and psychodynamic or a combination of therapies. Even some psychologists also make us of hypnosis for knowing the patient’s conditions better.
