Clinical Psychology Research Areas and Disciplines

A large part of current research in clinical psychology focuses on anxiety disorders, depression, and the psychosocial factors that influence these conditions. Researchers are working to discover the biological reasons behind certain disorders and possible cures. This takes place in collaboration with those in the pharmaceutical and medical industry. As well, researchers are also working to determine if non-pharmaceutical methods are effective as preventing or mitigating anxiety disorders, such as behavior modification.

Brain injuries and neurodevelopmental problems on basic sensory and perception processing are always being studied. The biological basis of brain injuries as well as social implications are being studied in an attempt to mitigate injuries in the first place, and lessening their impact on the victim and surrounding social circle after the fact.

Weight-loss and self-image is another topic of study in clinical psychology, with many practitioners working to develop strategies for helping the overweight think and live better and healthily reduce reasonable amounts of weight.

Geriatric psychological research attempts to understand issues that affect older adults' mental health. Lines of research are being investigated to improve the mental health of older individuals by enhancing their access to mental health services, helping them cope with stress when caring for older adults with dementia, and understanding resilience among older adults.
