It's a tough area for me in some cases. I am Christian and studied psychology, worked in mental health for years, have a mental illness etc.
I distrust psychology. I trust medical psychiatry because I have to. I wish I had stayed on my nursing track.
psychology in general is a soft science. Biopsychology/Neuropsychology is the study of the brain in relation to psychology and is a medical field.
Freud was a crazy, drug addicted pervert. The rest of them made some advances and discoveries that are worthy, but psychological theories do not usually hold up under the scientific method and are not much more than conjecture.
I DO believe that psychology/therapy DOES HELP PEOPLE, but if you are livng as a disciple of Christ, I would strongly suggest a Christian counselor.
been in and around the world of psychology for over 10 years
