Common Disabilities Affecting Psychologists
Psychologists require extensive training and knowledge in understanding your patients and providing therapy and counseling. You perform a job that requires high levels of personal interaction with your patients in identifying psychological, emotional, and behavioral issues and using a variety of treatment methods. Active listening, social perceptiveness, and complex problem solving are all extremely important skills for psychologists to perform your jobs. Cognitive function must always be on the highest possible level. Often under intense pressure and emotional demands, psychologists must recognize when your own health and wellbeing are negatively affected. In addition, multiple medical conditions ranging from mental/nervous, addiction and the gamut of physiological conditions may impair you as psychologist from effectively performing your duties, or even prevent the performance of those duties altogether. The financial result may range from a loss of income to the total inability to perform your duties altogether and possible total loss of income. When psychologists work begins to affect negatively your own health, the work itself becomes adversely impacted, thus resulting in a danger to patients and a loss of income for psychologists.
