What answer would one get asking a psychologist philosophical questions?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (16972points) 2 weeks ago

Like the meaning of life, how to be happy, ect.
Would it then be helpful for clinical and counseling psychologists to have knowledge in philosophy?

Can we create a new type of helping profession? Like clinical philosophy and/or philosophical counseling?

Found this YouTube video on
Think for a Change (30): What is Philosophical Counseling? I had to crank my volume to hear her speak.

It all seems like BS to me. In philosophy there are only questions, no answers. Each person has to work out their own personal meaning of life and find what makes them happy. Put differently, philosophy is all about grand abstractions and psychologists deal with the specifics of particular individuals.
