The Road to the Diagnostics of Psychology.

It can be seemingly difficult for a patient to realize that they may have something different about them, that doesn’t apply to the “average” human. Let’s be honest here, none of us are average, we are all different and unique in our own ways, and when being diagnosed with something , it does not mean that something is technically wrong with you. This just means that you have something triggering you at the moment, you might have a chemical imbalance, you might have an influx of different religious views on how you view yourself, let all of that go. When you need help, you need the help you can get; in order to get yourself healed and your mindset at ease. Did you know that one of the main causes people go into therapy and get diagnosed with certain presumptuous symptoms is due to the fact that they have been in seriously toxic relationships. That is crazy right ? Well it’s true. So here we are , in the state of figuring out how to diagnose someone; there are five stages. Number 1) the diagnostic stage, the preemptive stage where we figure out sensitively but accordingly what is really going on. 2) treatment for planning. 3) contributing to the effect of getting the mental health services you adequately need and deserve on a daily or monthly basis. 4) therapist communication , empathizing with the patient, understanding how they are doing. 5) understanding that no matter what happens , you are going to have patients who are worried and emotionally torn. Therefore, it makes it more difficult for them to speak about their feelings. Some will run from therapy and you can’t do anything about that but wish them well! A client should feel vulnerable enough with their therapist that they are capable of discussing their feelings and emotions. Be professional and collectively responsible about keeping your agreement of client patient confidentiality. Make sure to sign a HIPPA form that constitutes this agreement. If this is violated, the therapist could be sued for contentment of the clients free will to speak and herein, could allow the client to feel that they are not comfortable speaking with someone who is discussing their problems. This is totally illegal! Devoting the first meeting to clients is based upon their story, getting to know the client. The details of their life, their background history. What led them up to this exact day. Then you confront the idea of working one on one with the patient and tell them your rate. If it works for the client , wonderful. Then , next session you look and understand the client in a much broader context and the HIPPA form is signed once the client and the psychologist have agreed upon the initial understanding of working together.
