Processes most commonly used by clinical psychologist are various tests, written expressions of emotions, and genetic sampling and study.
I am interested in treating individuals that have addictions in either inpatient or an outpatient setting. I realize that there are many components that make up the integrated approach which is through relationship-building, assessment and evaluation, diagnosis, problem solving, relapse prevention strategies and reviewing client progress, reinforcing relapse prevention and assisting with aftercare. I believe by education, internship, volunteering and experience will only help to build some of these skills needed to be an addictions counselor. Also I believe that personal experience that includes past addictions will be most useful. I know that by having an awareness of my own habits and my own addiction problems I will be able to better assist a client with their own addiction struggles.

Abstract— Biofeedback analysis is a highly effective solution to variety of clinical symptoms ranging from involuntary urination to hypertension as well as assessing somatic awareness of the subject under test by making the virtually invisible really visible. This paper particularly investigates a case based approach to biofeedback analysis and some psychosomatic applications. Psychosomatic patients more often gives thrust in mastering case based skills rather than just attaching them to the equipments for the purpose of treatment of their disorders. Successful treatment includes (1) assessing the physiology of the subject under test as a diagnostic strategy, (2) explaining the illness and healing strategies in detail to the subject
Introduction Memory is the ability to maintain and use of information for the appropriate goal (1). Appropriate performance of memory depends on the health of many brain regions, including areas that are very sensitive to injury or disease. Learning and memory impairments are common complaints of individuals with symptoms of neurological disorders that impact on the daily activities and functional capabilities(2–4). Memory impairment is the most important reasons for seeking psychological evaluation in outpatient(2). In addition, many psychiatric and neurological diseases cause impairments in the process of memory(4–6).
Introduction Alcoholism is a disorder that suggests both physical and mental dependence on alcohol. Similar to any other addiction, it involves a continuous usage of such substances despite the negative consequences embedded to them. A heavy drinker is also most likely to suffer from withdrawal symptoms upon quitting In this review, three models of alcoholism will be explored: biopsychosocial, cognitive-behavioural therapy and transtheoretical model respectively. The element of the biopsychosocial model is applied to the other two models for further understanding. Biopsychosocial Model The biopsychosocial model offered a holistic alternative to the biomedical mode, attending simultaneously to the biological, psychological, and social dimensions
They used engram cells in the hippocampal dentate gyrus. This finding implies that the cause of Alzheimer's is memory retrieval problems, rather than a problem with the engram cells. These findings demonstrate that not only can optogenetics potentially reverse the effects of Alzheimer's, but that it can also help researchers learn more about the disease. Scientists have hitherto found that reduced dendritic spine density in neurons is linked to memory loss in Alzheimer’s Disease. Previous studies have found that long-term potentiation, which is the strengthening of synapses by repeated action (ncbi), can be induced with optogenetic methods.
Examples of mental disorders that fall under psychosis include schizophrenia and dementia; while examples of disorders that fall under neurosis are anxiety, depression or even substance abuse. Generally speaking, psychosis disorders can’t become neurosis disorders, but neurosis disorders have the potential to become psychosis disorders if left untreated or neglected. It is widely believed that people who suffer from psychosis disorders depend on prescribed medications to reduce or control their symptoms due to the overwhelming nature of the disease. This therapy or treatment is usually called somatic therapy and will be discussed later on in the paper. However, despite several neurosis disorders more commonly incorporated drugs in their treatments, depending on the psychiatrists’ diagnoses, some believe that therapies without drugs may be enough to treat the
