As a psychologist, working in several medical and psychiatric hospitals, I found that when many of my patients struggled in one area of life they struggled in other areas, too. When my patients and clients came with concerns over their changes, challenges and losses in life, I found that their mental distress and sense of vulnerability in life could lead to physical problems. Then and now the convergence of life stress and sickness is very apparent.
Your Healthcare Team
Many people seek psychological help on the advice of their medical doctor. We have come to know that intervention and help in one area of a person’s life can help in that “system” and the other areas of life. Indeed, it has been found that a complete healthcare team offers compassionate, lower “cost” and a more time effective way to help longer terms problems for a patient/client.
The Role of a Licensed Practical Psychologist
A psychologist, who has earned a Ph.D. or Doctorate in Psychology has typically prepared themselves with 5 to 7 years of academic, research, professional and person training. Then, following 2000 to 4000 hours of post-university training and a passing several tests, the State Board of Psychology recognizes and entrust that person with a license to serve the public. In the State of Minnesota it is as a Licensed Psychologist (LP).
