In this article, I am departing from the usual method of presenting psychological information and then leaving the reader to imagine how it applies. This time, I will present “experience-near” case data (part 1), first, and then discuss the psychological issues (part 2), second, and for very good reason. - See more at: http://drcrowhurst.com/2012/02/13/depression-and-marital-distress-part-1/ #maritaladvice #distress

“Depression” is commonly used to describe a mood or emotion, and, more technically, a symptom of a syndrome or psychological disorder.

The first and most common question people ask me, as a psychologist, is “what’s the difference between psychology and psychiatry?” Every psychologist hears this question. Psychologists can be put out by it, but this a very fair question—especially since people don’t know what we do and how it differs from… - See more at: http://drcrowhurst.com/2011/10/24/psychology-vs-psychiatry/ #psychologist #psychotherapy #psychology #calgary

Psychology 101. “Psychology is defined as the scientific study of behavior.”  My formal training in Psychology began with that disappointing statement.
