臨床心理學知多少?

Q: 臨床心理學家係咪精神科醫生?
A: 臨床心理學家同埋精神科醫生都係治療精神病以及情緒困擾嘅專業人士,但兩者用嘅方法唔同。臨床心理學家係使用實證為本 (evidence-based) 嘅心理治療,佢地掌握心理學的理論及實踐,佢透過面談同埋練習,與患者共同疏理出困擾住佢哋嘅癥結,協助佢地紓緩困擾帶來嘅影響;精神科醫生主要用藥物治療,會處方精神科藥物去調整引致精神問題嘅大腦神經傳遞物質嘅不平衡。

Q: 臨床心理學家會用咩方法幫我?
A: 臨床心理學家 熟悉各種精神困擾嘅診斷,擅長分析服務對象嘅想法、行為、環境等互動關係,從服務對象嘅成長背景、經歷、以及日常生活模式理解服務對象所面對嘅困難,並提供以實證為本嘅心理治療(evidence-based treatment),診治受精神困擾嘅人士。
臨床心理學家主要透過面談詳 細 了解當事人的情況同其他背景資料,同時透過合適嘅心理評估工具, 有效咁作出具科學理據嘅診斷,亦會搵出以及共同疏理出困擾住服務對象嘅癥結,同埋透過心理治療及練習協助佢地紓緩精神困擾帶來嘅影響。

Q: 臨床心理學可以處理什麼問題?
A: 臨床心理學家嘅服務對象包括任何受到不同問題(成長、情緒、行為、精神建康) 嘅困擾人士。例如過份憂慮、恐懼、抑鬱、暴躁、飲食失調、性格障礙、思覺失調、濫用藥物、因疾病 或創傷引發嘅情緒困擾以及適應問題等。臨床心理學家亦會協助唔同年齡以及階層嘅人士處理人生階段常遇上嘅成長困惑、感情挫折、人際關係問題、家庭問題及工作壓力等。

Q: 第一次見臨床心理學有冇咩要準備?
A: 臨床心理學家會問你問題,你只要如實咁描述你嘅情況就可以,就好似睇醫生咁問你邊度唔舒服咁。多數都會問到你嘅家庭、社交、工作、或者其他資料。覺得緊張、提及某啲經歷時可能會有唔舒服嘅感覺,都係好自然嘅,只要按自己覺得合適嘅步伐盡量坦白就可以啦。
