Interesting fact pertaining to psychology
According to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), all registered health practitioners must meet standards and policies that set by AHPRA National Boards. AHPRA's operations are governed by the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law; these standards are in force across each state across Australia. These regulations came into effect as of July 2010. This law was the first of its kind in Australia, as fourteen diverse health professionals were regulated consistently under the same National Registration and Accreditation Scheme.

These include
• Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practice Board of Australia
• Chinese Medicine Board of Australia
• Chiropractic Board of Australia
• Dental Board of Australia
• Medical Board of Australia
• Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia
• Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia
• Occupational Therapy Board of Australia
• Optometry Board of Australia
• Osteopathy Board of Australia
• Pharmacy Board of Australia
• Physiotherapy Board of Australia
• Podiatry Board of Australia
• Psychology Board of Australia

‘Clinical lycanthropy’ is the process of exhibiting a delusional belief that one will, or has transformed into a wolf-like creature.
This is in contrast to ‘actual lycanthropy’, where one does actually transform, or ‘partial lycanthropy’ where the delusions are held but are connected to abnormalities such as excessive hair-growth (Blom 2014).
This literature review detailed a total of 56 psychological transformations into some sort of animal
Several of these documented cases had attached mental health conditions with psychotic features such as schizophrenia, bipolar, psychotic depression and schizoid personality structures (Blom 2014)
Some cases marked as ‘clinical zoanthropy’ had reported transformations into ‘bee’ or ‘frog’ or even larger suidae animals such as ‘wild-boar’ (Blom 2014).
Research explains that these delusions had conditions attached to them.
Primary delusions, which is the onset of unwavering false beliefs by means of some form of mental thought disorder
Secondary delusions which are unwavering false beliefs gained through potential organic pathological means; by-products of other illnesses (Blom 2014; Turner & Coltheart 2010).
What kind of pathological illness could potentially cause one to believe they are turning into an animal?
All cases have some sort of psychotic disorder attached to them, with appropriate treatment measures such as anti-psychotic psychopharmacology and more extreme measures of electro-convulsive therapy.
H.P. Lovecraft was publishing horror fiction, as well as another significant proportion of people developing lycanthropic delusions around the time ‘Twilight’ was published.

• Psychologists believe that behaviour and psychological aspects of the condition is crucial to managing diabetes and preventing its complications.

• They help encourage patients to have self-care plans and confidence.

• Diabetic patients are at a higher risk of developing emotional problems than the general population.

• Sever depressive symptoms affect 1 in 10 Australian adults with type 1 diabetes, and almost 1 in 5 with type 2 diabetes.

• Psychologists help patients deal with their stress and look for ways how they can cope with their condition.

• Diabetes related distress is associated with increased blood glucose levels and reducing it will likely improve biomedical outcomes.

This presentation aims to cover the general questions that may be asked about the health profession of a psychologist. We hope you gather just as much information from viewing this presentation, as we did creating it. While completing this section of the Inter-professional educational program at VU, we learned how important it is for health professionals to work with one another in practice. This provides the patient with optimal care, and also benefits the health professional by sharing the role of care with others.

Throughout this presentation slides with a symbol means that the slide has more information via audio commentary, so make sure your speakers are turned up!
