The study of psychology has been treated with skepticism due to the limits of scientific evidence based on practical observation. In other words, it is impossible to look inside the brain and directly observation how the brain works or to know what someone is thinking. To get the recognition psychology has acquired today (Dr. Phil Talk Show), did take some time due to the division within the study of psychology. Research psychologists were trying to develop the one theory that was most effective in explaining human behavior, brain function, and thought processes. After further review psychologists began to connect the dots, in turn seeing the bigger picture. Psychologists now understand psychology is a collective study of multiple theories and no one theory can fully explain human behavior.
I believe talking is one of the best therapies we can in-cooperate in our everyday lives, (obviously people with severe problem would require in-depth or additional therapy). The study of psychology reveals talking helps; talking to a professional, friend, family, group, or couple is effective in helping others talk through and solve personal problems. Talking allows us to see thing differently; get helpful feedback from others; and to reveals ideas we may not have thought about previously. Talking also allows us to hear ourselves think, sometimes things sound better in our minds than they do out loud; talking is another way of knowing if what we think make sense.
In the business world talking is effective when making financial decisions; business professional conduct round table, focus groups, and other forms of meetings to talk in order to develop ideas, plans, and strategies to produce success.
In relationships couples tend to experience communication problems for one main reason, they do not know how to talk or communicate; either they do not talk to each other or they talk at each rather than to each other. Psychology professionals often advice couples to intentionally talk and listen to each other in order to develop healthy and effective communication skills in their relationships. Relationships that have been severed for years can be reunite by simply talking; people sometimes talk and realize that their past disputes were a result of simple miscommunication.
There is a saying, “be careful who you talk to.” Pay heed to this saying when talking to others by keeping in mind not everyone is capable of giving an objective point of view. Sometimes it is good to know who you are talking to, at the same time strangers can give the best advice. For this reason people tend to talk to professionals or just not talk at all. When finding someone to talk to, in my experience the wiser or older generations are more likely to be objective and able to give solid advice. People with life experience tend to have more insight about life situations verse our peers.
Talking does helps, some people refer to talking as venting or releasing frustration. Talking to others helps us realize we you are not alone; people can share similar experiences and can give support to one another. Talking can heal broken relationships and helps us develop better relationships.
