Activities of a psychologist
A GZ-psychologist focuses on diagnosing, making indications, treatments, functional recovery and the prevention of psychological diseases. Diagnosing and treatment are both focused on thinking, feeling, desiring, judging and goal-oriented treatments. Besides that, the psychologist will also consider any societal and cultural contexts a patient might be in. The basic mental health care (Basis GGZ in Dutch) works alongside other disciplines in the mental healthcare, the prescription of medication together with GP’s amongst other things. A clinical psychologist, BIG-registered (specialist GGZ, SGGZ), is concerned with mental illnesses which are more complex, severe and riskier compared to the basic GGZ (BGGZ). The psychologist is ultimately responsible for the treatment of the patient.
