The second option is one of those that also focuses a change in psychology, which is why you can see some of the biggest changes that you can have with great ease and revolutionize the whole system as we intended it.
How has technology changed psychology?
Lapplication of technology to psychology is making great strides, and today we can talk about topics related to this science without fear of being criticized or judged, indeed. Today we can invest in ourselves by considering the additional support of friends, family and colleagues.
Research on the online psychological therapy are numerous and have underlined how the online mode has proved itself effective for the treatment of numerous pathologies.
Also 'Order of Psychologists, following the increase in this type of use of the service during and after the period of the pandemic from Covid-19, he discussed the matter, coming to the conclusion that the modalities of the therapeutic relationship, in presence or online, must guarantee the same quality standards.
What are the new technologies applied to psychology?
Although the application tries to cover a large number of topics that are important for the stable development of new methods, the main focus is on 4 options, which are as follows:
Internet as a tool for psychological well-being / Internet for psychological therapy
Linternet application for psychological treatments it is truly diverse, as there are several complementary tools that can be used to generate new methods or treatments for patients.
It is important to consider that the use of these complementary tools, including the Internet, must be expressed with total clarity and respecting at all times the patient privacy during the beginning, the end and the storage of the treatment once it is finished, so as not to be shared with other professionals or people who wish to consult this information.
A virtuous and effective example of the use of the internet for therapeutic practice is that of Unobravo.com. Unobravo is the first online psychology service in Italy, which connects each patient to their therapist using the video call, thus allowing to carry out therapy from anywhere in the world.
Born as a startup, today (and after only three years), Unobravo is a company that has more than 50.000 patients and more than 2000 psychologists, who carry out the sessions simply using an internet connection. But what is the reason for such rapid growth?
It cannot be said that there is only one but, with regard to technological innovation applied to psychology, one of the pillars of Unobravo's innovation is its Matching system, an innovative way of researching the therapist by the user based on the compilation of a questionnaire designed to match each patient, with their specific needs and preferences, to the most suitable therapist among all those of Unobravo.
A radical change that responds to the doubts that often a user may have regarding the criteria for choosing a therapist, which is now supported by the proprietary algorithm. Of course, technology isn't useful unless it meets people's real needs.
This is why, after the assignment of the therapist, Unobravo gives the patient the opportunity to meet the professional in a first free cognitive interview, useful for getting to know each other and understanding how much the chosen psychologist corresponds to the patient's needs and if there are the right conditions to start. a therapeutic path.
Only then do you move on to the sessions, which take place online from your desktop or using the Unobravo App. Both channels guarantee total respect for patient privacy and the security of all data.
The application of virtual reality for professional and personal development
The development of the virtual reality not only focuses on entertainment, but alsoapplication in the health sector plays an important role, whereby new improvement systems can be developed in which the patient can experiment with different actions that will help him to be more aware of different problems or complex situations.
The application of these treatments it's still not very common, but a point that professionals make very well is that the patient must be very well prepared in order to be aware of everything that represents a "hypothetical" scenario that will be constantly worked on.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation
Transcranial magnetic stimulation has always been used in the scientific and psychological fields, although today it has many different applications that generate excellent results in treatment of various ailments (such as depression, substance addiction, bipolar disorder, and anxiety).
This is a technique that patients are not usually familiar with and that generates a bit of fear, but the truth is that the results can be really satisfying.
The purpose of neurofeedback is to teach the patient how to perceive specific states of cortical activation, and then how to reach them voluntarily and autonomously. Following the training, the treated patient becomes aware of the different states and able to reproduce them. This helps the patient to be able to "self-regulate" voluntarily.
