Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the modern computing world, many people have started rushing towards luxurious and comfortable lives, which introduces an array of psychological disorders such as anxiety, stress, and depression. It is estimated that mental illness affects more than 40 million adults every year. As a result, neuroscientists and clinical researchers have started directing their attention towards clinical psychology assisted treatment plans for the people suffering from these conditions. The use of clinical psychology in mental health diagnosis identifies some of the key indicators for mental health disorders before they arise. Clinical psychology enables doctors to find patients with risk for particular mental disorders in an effective manner. Traditionally, mental disorders are diagnosed based on group averages and statistics over populations. However, in recent years, clinical psychology has assisted doctors in effectively diagnosing mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders with personalized patient data.

An attempt to place clinical psychology in mental, emotional, and behavioral analysis is the most appropriate intersection between mental health and psychology. As clinical psychology focuses on treating stress, anxiety, and learning abilities, it forms the basis for the mental health diagnosis process. In general, mental health diagnoses are performed in two ways. In a first way, clinical psychology methods are used to determine the patient’s key behavioral biomarkers and suggest effective treatment plans. The other includes the prediction of underlying diseases. For instance, blood cholesterol is a biomarker that indicates the possible risk of heart diseases. The use of cognitive psychology to treat mental health disorders is a new area of research and requires greater importance. Currently, most of the existing approaches focus on the diagnosis and detection of mental disorders using clinical diagnosis procedures. As an emerging domain, there are important gaps for future research to address. There are a variety of clinical psychology approaches in practice; the applicability of a given approach differs from one case to another. Thus, finding an appropriate methodology for mental, emotional, and behavioral health could provide more precise and accurate solutions. This Special Issue aims to provide the latest research findings and solutions in terms of clinical psychology for behavioral and mental health diagnoses. The topics of the Special Issue include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Predicting psychological distress using clinical psychology to prevent heart diseases;
  • Clinical psychology for family, systems, and health;
