My husband is very short tempered. He gets angry on very small small things. We did love marriage 2 years back and have a 1 year old daughter. Before marriage he was very good to me but after marriage he suddenly got changed. He abuses me, scolds me, even sometimes got angry with our child. When he talks with his friends he seems very happy. He doesn't talk to me, not even replied to my questions. What should I do? I am really upset and depressed.

You need to sit down and discuss your problem with your husband. Try to focus on the issues rather than the behavior. Engage with him when he is calm. Don't try to react when he is angry. Don't compare the days of courtship to your current days. Don't involve third person in the family to solve your problem at the beginning. Try to engage yourself in activities other than child care and house hold activities which will give you happiness.

I am depressed and I am consulting a psychologist. How much time it can take for the treatment?

I am depressed and I am consulting a psychologist. How much time it can take for the treatment?
Dear lybrate-user, I don't know what type of treatment you are taking from psychologist. If it is cognitive therapy it can be anywhere between 5 months to 6 months of weekly sessions. One needs to go step by step in therapy and it takes many sessions. Usually 18-20 sessions will do if you are regular to sessions.

Problems in study in youth

Now a days students from all over india started complaining of poor concentration and poor memory problem, anger outburst.

There are many reasons for above mentioned complaints.

First thing that affect your study is atmosphere, plan your study room according to your need.

Second is any relationship issues with your friends, family and others.

Third one is use of gadgets in between study. One can set daily limit for gadget use.

Fourth one is underlying psychological issues such as low mood, any stressor, repetitive thoughts or images, fearfulness, sleep problems.

Fifth one is not interested in study at all from the beginning so one should have proper interest in study. Interest in study can be evoked by your life's long term goals.


These are only few specific problem. There may be other reason also according to individual life.

How to Tell If You Need Help Quitting Drinking

Masters in Clinical Psychology

How to Tell If You Need Help Quitting Drinking

The first step to getting help for a drinking problem is actually recognising that you have one. There are some signs that you might have a problem with alcohol, but it's also worthwhile asking yourself a few questions about your reasons for drinking. Facing the facts can be pretty tough, but it's courageous to step up and decide you need help to control your alcohol intake.

This can help if:

 

  •     You're regularly binge drinking
  •     You're having blackouts
  •     You drink when you're alone
  •     Other people are worried about your drinking habits 
  •     You have an increased tolerance to alcohol and drugs

Signs of alcohol dependence

It's not always easy to tell when you have a drinking problem, particularly as binge drinking is a pretty common activity in Australia. You might not always notice when a couple of drinks has turned into too many.

The fact that you're thinking about whether you have a problem is a good start and there are some signs of alcohol dependence that you can look out for:

 

  •     Worrying about when you'll be able to have your next drink
  •     Suffering from withdrawal symptoms like sweating, nausea or insomnia as a result of not drinking alcohol
  •     Needing to drink more and more alcohol to get drunk
  •     Drinking alcohol, or desiring to drink alcohol, when you wake up in the morning
  •     Consuming alcohol regularly on your own, or trying to hide your alcohol consumption from those around you
  •     Relationships with friends or family are being affected by your drinking. Ask yourself some questions

A couple of questions that people who work in the field of alcohol addiction often ask people include...

 

  •     Do you drink because you have problems or to relax?
  •     Do you drink when you get mad at other people, including your friends or parents?
  •     Do you prefer to drink alone, rather than with other people?
  •     Is your work or education suffering as a result of your drinking?
  •     Have you ever tried to stop drinking or to drink less and found that you can't?
  •     Do you drink in the morning, before school or work?
  •     Do you gulp your drinks?
  •     Do you ever have loss of memory due to your drinking?
  •     Do you lie about how much or how often you drink?
  •     Do you ever get into trouble when you're drinking?
  •     Do you get drunk when you drink, even when you don't mean to?
  •     Do other people comment on your drinking and think it's a problem?

If you answer yes to any one of these questions, it's possible that you have a problem with alcohol.

Facing the facts

Facing up to the fact that you might have a problem takes courage. Deciding to take control and get some help is a really brave move, and if you do feel you have a problem, getting help can be the best thing ever.

Medicine usually don't have such side effects. You can do this, do slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises in the morning to be mentally strong. About 30 times. Take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Avoid garlic and red chilly and non veg and eggs. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily.

How are Psychological tests helpful?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Navi Mumbai
How are Psychological tests helpful?

Psychological assessment — also known as psychological testing — is done to help a psychologist better understand an individual and provide valuable insights into the individual’s behavior, skills, thoughts and personality. Psychological testing commonly includes intelligence testing, personality testing, and skills testing, among other areas.

Psychological assessment is never focused on a single test score or number. Every person has a range of competencies that can be evaluated through a number of methods. A psychologist is there to evaluate the competencies as well as the limitations of the person, and report on them in an objective but helpful manner. A psychological assessment report will not only note weaknesses found in testing, but also the individual’s strengths.

It has often ben said that 'you are what you think'. It is the human mind which enabled the entire race to dominate over the planet over millions of other species. How can this very complex instrument is so difficult to understand? The human mind is capable of extreme highs and lows in terms of every aspect such as emotions, achievement, empathy anger and so forth. One field of study is Psychology which does help us in its understanding. 

What are psychological tests?

Psychological tests are a method to gauge various parameters of an individual’s mind and how it works. There are not one but multiple psychological tests which help with determining various aspects of a person’s mental functioning and capabilities among others. Like medical tests such as X-rays and various types of blood reports help us get a better picture of the condition of your body, similarly, psychological testing helps us a get a better view of a person’s thinking and if at all there are any problems with it. Just a few examples of psychological testing are as follows – 

  1. Aptitude testing in children to check for learning disabilities 
  2. Testing for skills such as dexterity or flexibility, and reaction time to look for brain damage or dementia
  3. Memory tests to look for psychological disorders as well as dementia
  4. Testing for anxiety related disorders especially in social conditions, both in children and adults

How are these helpful?
More than pinpointing psychological disorders, these tests are meant to help an individual point out problems and then start on a treatment or therapy to overcome the problems. These tests can help a person in many ways such as – 

  1. Identifying problems early on when they are mild, thus making treatment more effective
  2. Help them further in studies or their career where certain conditions or problems were becoming an impediment
  3. Provide methods to tackle a phobia
  4. Sometimes, psychological testing is very helpful in diagnosing serious mental issues such as depression which may force many to take their own lives; thus preventing it
  5. Helping to combat physiological problems in cases where no pathological causes are found. In many cases, stress and anxiety lead to other disorders like diabetes, hypertension, gastrointestinal troubles and others. Once the psychological side is treated after correct diagnosis, the physical problems also tend to dissipate. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

General Physician,
Work–related stress can kill

Job stress raises the risk of heart disease by disrupting the body’s internal systems.

The findings from a long–running study involving more than 10,000 British civil servants also suggest that stress–induced biological changes may play a more direct role than previously thought.

The researchers measured stress among the civil servants by asking questions about their job demands such as how much control they had at work, how often they took breaks, and how pressed for time they were during the day.

The team conducted seven surveys over a 12–year period and found chronically stressed workers – people determined to be under severe pressure in the first two of the surveys – had a 68 percent higher risk of developing heart disease. The link was strongest among people under 50.

Stressed workers also eat unhealthy food, smoke, drink and skip exercise – all behaviors linked to heart disease.

In the study, stressed workers also had lowered heart rate variability – a sign of a poorly–functioning weak heart and higher than normal levels of cortisol, a "stress" hormone that provides a burst of energy for a fight–or–flight response.

Too much cortisol circulating in the blood stream can damage blood vessels and the heart.
