Psychology is the study of human emotions and behaviour. It is the scientific study of the human mind and its functions, especially those affecting behaviour in a given context what makes this subject unique is that it incorporates both the elements of science and arts in itself. Even though it’s a vast subject in itself, studying this subject helps us understand human behaviour more efficiently as no matter where we are and whatever we do, we interact with different people on day to day basis. Psychology can also play a role in improving your health and well-being if you are trying to break a bad habit and establish new routines.
There are various courses which are available in India for those who want to learn psychology generally or even for those who wants to take it up as an career option, for example diploma courses in psychology, certificate courses in psychology, bachelors and masters in psychology, M.Phil and doctorate degrees in Psychology.
Those who pursue these courses work as clinical psychologist, counsellors, psychotherapist or social workers. But as mentioned before about the vastness of this subject, people in other fields like industries, law, business professionals, teachers, sports coaches, doctors also get enrolled themselves in getting better understanding of this subject. . People who have taken psychology courses are able to provide valuable insight, thus creating more competent and successful individuals.
According to WHO, 264 million people in India need mental health services, and there are only 792 practitioners, we would need at least 50,000 professionals more to fill in the gap.
