Discuss how current counselling and psychotherapy practice emerged from psychiatry and psychology. Analyse the similarities and differences between psychotherapy and counselling practices. I will assess the origins of psychoanalysis and how this impacted on subsequent schools of thought.I will discuss the importance of Freud and how some of his theories were challenged by later psychologists resulting in differing models for therapeutic practice.I will explore how these models are applied to contemporary counselling and psychotherapy. I aim to analyse the similarities and differences between counselling and psychotherapy through critical evaluation of how these practices work within society today. By establishing differences between psychiatry and psychology,how counselling and psychotherapy emerged from these disciplines becomes clearer.Psychiatry relates to the process of healing the mind through medical intervention.Psychology has its roots within academic study and research of human and animal perception.Psychoanalysis is ‘interested in exploration of the unconscious mind in order to cure’.
From this assumption, the development of numerous models is to provide various ways to study personality and consider factors for application on various settings. One example of an assessment model is the Myers Biggs Type Indicator (MBTI). The purpose of this approach is to categorize individuals according to the different personality types provided by psychologists Carl Jung (Business Balls.com, 2006). Among key indicators considered in this evaluation consider behavioral preferences and careful understanding of personal strengths and weaknesses. The component of this method is the ability to pair specific traits that comprise of (1) extraversion or introversion, (2) sensing or intuition, (3) thinking or feeling, and (4) judging or perceiving (Engler,

Comparatively, cross-cultural psychologists systematically research behavior across cultures in different cultural situations (Shiraev & Levy, 2010). Critical Thinking Critical thinking in cross-cultural psychology is important because cross-cultural psychology is about identifying the similarities and differences in individuals and how they function in his or her culture. Critical thinking is about making realistic, valid and reasonable evidence. Critical thinking is described as maintaining an attitude that is open=minded and doubtful (Shiraev & Levy, 2010).
Bias in research- refers to beliefs that interfere with objectivity Placebo effect- a fake treatment, an inactive substance like sugar, distilled water, or saline solution can sometimes improve a patient’s condition simply because the person has the expectation that it will help them.

The Diverse Nature of Psychology PSY 490 Name April 22, 2013 The Diverse Nature of Psychology The diverse nature of psychology is to study and understand the mental processes of human behavior. There are various aspects to consider when studying such complexity of the human body and its behavior.

Two examples of major concepts and of subtopics will be presented and how they can be applied to other disciplines.

There have been efforts made by philosophers to reconcile the thoughts on determinism and voluntarism. Psychology being a science of human behavior does not have scientific laws to prove the presence of fate/destiny or choice.
