Clinical Counseling Psychology
Finding an identity: Psychology has been struggling to find its identity since the 16th century when the term was first coined. Attempting to create a field and gain recognition as a science has been equally difficult. Today, the study of the soul is commonly defined as the science of mind and behavior. Neither a philosophy nor a hard science, psychology has wandered through many gardens in an effort to firmly plant itself, earn its place as a field of study, and be acknowledged as an independent entity.
