Out of all the psychology disciplines out there Abnormal Psychology is quite engaging, because it takes you into the emotional, cognitive (or thought) and the abnormal mindsets and behaviors of people. It gives you insight into their lives and the way they look at it as well as the world around them. And, yes, there’s the added element of danger from patient aggression and such like. What’s important is you can learn how the brain can function in ways society considers ‘abnormal’. Such an education gives you a chance to help such people or if you can’t do anything about it then to offer viable alternatives to their families or the patients themselves.
Psychoanalysis – One Of The Best Psychology Subjects Out There
The name Sigmund Freud is synonymous with Psychology. He practically redefined the field. When he himself had a hand in conceiving the very notion of Psychoanalysis you can understand the vast implications this subject entails. Most of his own former students have had a hand to play in its development and many a recent student has too. This versatile branch of Psychology is ideal to study and practice, because of the huge benefits it imparts to people who come to psychoanalysts confused about life or even having suicidal tendencies.
If you’re a student these and more await you, but not in the boring and tough-on-you kind of way. What you learn in this subject is how to handle all these things, use what you know and apply it where needed and help the patient sooner than you might have expected.
Investigative Psychology – An Exciting Choice Of Study
If you’re a student seeking a branch of Psychology that has you out on the field and applying your learning then Investigative Psychology is your primary option. By getting into an offender’s shoes and re-creating the scene of a crime before it actually happened, you play the role of detective, actor, scientist and criminal and get to the bottom of a mystery or case. Solving it may take time depending in the case’s complexity or the ingenuity of the criminal(s) involved, but Investigative Psychology is one of the first things people turn to when they need to get answers to offenses committed against humanity.
What you can get by way of scope in this field is simply stunning. There are Governments and also private bodies that need the resourcefulness and imaginative reconstructions skills of an investigative psychologist to help solve crimes using rational reasoning based on facts. What better application can a ‘good guy’ ask for? You get paid a lot for doing something so exciting and, sometimes, fraught with danger.
