The growing understanding of psychology and its importance has brought with itself a plethora of career opportunities .It holds the solution to a thousand mental, social and psychological problems human beings find themselves battling with. Psychology is the systematic study of human behavior in all its aspects and at all stages of growth and development of humans. Psychologists observe the working of the human mind in isolation as well as in interaction with society. Psychologists work in specialized fields which include :-



Counseling Psychology


Industrial Psychology


Developmental Psychology


Social Psychology


Educational Psychology




The psychologists always work with people. In their day to day life , they have to constantly work upon updating themselves with the various changes taking place in the society.



Like clinical psychologists usually work with medical experts in hospitals, prisons, rehabilitation centers for drug addicts or for the physically or mentally challenged, research institutions etc. To assist delinquents in acquiring sound mental health , psychologists need to be aware of various issues such as crimes prevailing in the society and evaluating and understanding the reasons for the same.



They have to come up with various behavior modification techniques, relaxation exercises and ways to inculcate moral values etc. To assist drug addicts , chain smokers or alcoholics in attaining sound mental health, they need to aware of the family dynamics, the role of peers and other significant on humans etc. Industrial psychologist work with working population .



There are many life style diseases such as high blood pressure, heart attacks etc emerging. Psychologists needs to have thorough understanding of the factors triggering or adding on to such disease. They have to constantly come with the ways and techniques to equip their clients in attaining a sound mental health.



They have to come up with various relaxation techniques, motivational exercises etc to charge up the work population. The counseling psychologists constantly have to work upon finding the ways to make young generation more resilient, coming up with various life skills and ways to inculcate them.



The educational psychologists and career counselor constantly need to update themselves with the career options emerging everyday in the job market. As the competition tunnel is getting narrow day by day, psychologists need to come up with the techniques to assist students in having better and long concentration span, time management skills etc.



Many students are being diagnosed with learning disorders such as Dyslexia, Dystrophic, ADHD, ADD etc. The psychologist have to work up designing a dynamic treatment plan to suit the individual needs of such special children. They also have to devise programs to educate and equip parents to deal with the various challenges of parenting.
