How Philosophy Helped Me Process Psychosis

This will be part of my story but also a tribute to the power and destructive properties of thought. I started cracking up shortly after I took my first philosophy introductory course 5 years ago. We covered everything from determinism to Cogito Ergo Sum… Continue Reading “How Philosophy Helped Me Process Psychosis”

Exposure Therapy May Drown You

My absence is attributed, this time, to preparation for a presentation that I did for my research course. We had great fun: saturated the Google Slides with relevent, cheesy memes, and presented our failed experiment data and had a great laugh about it all.… Continue Reading “Exposure Therapy May Drown You”

Is Psychology A Science? Part 4

We’ve arrived to the conclusion of this series, and bullet point number two: psychology is the quantum physics of human study. There is valid psychological research out there. The world has learned many things thanks to proper psychological researchers following proper scientific methods and… Continue Reading “Is Psychology A Science? Part 4”

Is Psychology A Science? Part 3

You’re here–great! This post would have been here yesterday, but I took an extra two shifts at work this week and am worn out for other reasons. In the last post, we talked about the Clinical Method and the Actuarial method, and declared the… Continue Reading “Is Psychology A Science? Part 3”

Is Psychology A Science? Part 2

Welcome back. Yesterday we touched on clinical arrogance a bit, and discovered that the real problem with it isn’t the arrogance of the provider, but the blockade it provides against learning new techniques and staying updated with proper research. I mentioned I had two… Continue Reading “Is Psychology A Science? Part 2”

Is Psychology A Science? Part 1.

To Be A Mental Health Consumer

Yesterday I said today’s post would be about whether or not psychology is a science and how certain types of philosophy play into the ideals psychologists and M.D’s are trained with, but right now I don’t have access to the notes I made in… Continue Reading “To Be A Mental Health Consumer”

Own Your Care

Today’s post is a little late because I’ve just come back from Urgent Care to get my back checked out. I overextended in the gym and have torn some lower back muscles. The pain is pretty severe, the doctor is thinking it’s very deep… Continue Reading “Own Your Care”

Objectively being Objective

Do other bloggers/writers enjoy writer’s block as much as I do? I think it’s a time to explore what you want to say versus what you could say. Or maybe I’m one of those horrible people who see light in every darkness, and not… Continue Reading “Objectively being Objective”

You’re Not Allowed to Die

Jumping from the physical sciences (biology, physics, chemistry) and into psychological research methods is quite a leap. I am no expert in biology, physics and certainly not chemistry, and I never finished a degree in any of them, but I’ve taken enough to get… Continue Reading “You’re Not Allowed to Die”
