How psychology adapts to new technologies and challenges of the digital age

News and Info from Deeside, Flintshire, North Wales

Technologies are increasingly becoming part of our lives. They change our way of thinking, behavior, and interaction with the world around us. And, of course, digital transformation has not spared psychology. We tell you how science, its approaches, and methods have changed.

Technical Innovation

Along with advancements in neuroscience and cognitive psychology, the tech landscape witnesses a proliferation of devices and applications designed to facilitate the study of the human psyche. This expansion is evident at https://e-catalog.co.uk/ offering a huge diversity of gadgets catering to various therapeutic methodologies and psychological interventions. For instance, emerging innovations in EMDR therapy are reflected in the availability of specialized devices designed to enhance the effectiveness of this psychotherapeutic approach. These gadgets provide users with a comfortable means of undergoing bilateral stimulation, mimicking the eye movements experienced during sleep, thus accelerating processing and maximizing therapeutic outcomes. As technology continues to intersect with psychology, electronic catalogs serve as vital repositories for a diverse array of devices, smartphones, and applications, offering solutions that revolutionize the study and treatment of the human mind.

From the office to online

The most obvious change was brought to us by Covid-19. If earlier psychologists conducted consultations only in person, now most consultations are held online. This allows you to work with a patient from anywhere in the world, regardless of distance and time zone. You can be thousands of kilometers away from each other and get in touch using Zoom, Google Meet, WhatsApp, etc.

On the one hand, this expands the possibilities of private practice for specialists, on the other hand, it allows clients to open up better while being in the comfort of their own home.

Deanonymization of the personality of a psychologist

Just 10 years ago, the psychologist remained a rather mysterious figure: the client met with him in sessions and did not know anything about the life of a specialist outside the office. Nowadays, finding an account on any social network is a matter of five minutes. Moreover, most psychologists specifically maintain and actively promote their blogs. There they not only talk about their work but also, in the spirit of the trend for new sincerity, share personal experiences, showing that a psychologist is also a person.

There is still no consensus in the professional and scientific communities whether this is good or bad. However, in practice, we see that clients trust more those specialists who are active and “human” on social networks. Observing their lives, they already feel emotionally closer to the psychologist, and it becomes easier to trust him.
