In general, like salary, worktime, work hours etc etc, how good is a clinical psychologists job. is it exciting, pay good, and since your studying psychology dosen't it help out in daily life?
i'm going into clinical psychology, so i wanted some comments.
I am in the second year of my psychology degree, and I am hoping to become a clinical psychologist in the future. The problem is I have no idea what sort of summer jobs I should be applying for (I've already signed up for volunteer work in Ghana). Help please?
I was always wondering what is the difference between these two jobs? How does a clinical psychologist work his clients and how does a psychotherapist? Whats the main difference?
I would like to be a clinical psychologist and I will know 3 languages proficiently (English, Spanish, and French) by the time I will get a job. So can I have better job opportunities with these languages or better pay?
I have calculated that in order to be able to pay back my student loans, live in a modest apartment, and to be able to eat and put gas in my car and pay utilities, I will have to earn about 75k a year. After graduate school I will have a doctorate in clinical psychology, and the national average salary for this type of job is about 75k.
Does anyone know what the STARTING salary for a clinical psychologist working in a clinical setting (not private practice) might be?
Hi! I'm graduating high school next year, and I've already taken several psych courses. I'm interested in becoming a clinical psychologist eventually.
I was looking into attending Widener University to get my Bachelors in Psychology with a minor in either Sociology or Philosophy.
Eventually I want to publish books about my theories.
What degrees should I look into? What about jobs after college?
I was looking into possibly Case Managing until I receive my Masters and eventually my PhD.
Any suggestions from people who are clinical psychologists?
I'm seriously considering becoming a clinical psychologist, but I have heard it is astonishingly hard and that you have to be a straight a student to beat the competition. I was wondering if any professional clinical psychologists could tell me the whole school process, how hard school is, how hard it is to get a job and the requirements to beat the competition, and the daily routine in the actual job.
Also, what are some colleges with a good psychology program?
What are the degree requirements to be a clinical psychologist or to open up an office to be a therapist?
If I wanted to open my own office and give people psychological counseling, what level of degree do I need or do I need a degree at all?
If I wanted to prescribe medicine, I would imagine that I need to get a whole separate degree as well...?
But what about working in a school or part of another organization?
I'm in my first year of my A Levels and i've decided sternly that i want to further my education to become a clinical psychologist. I've read around some and i know that clinical psychology is the largest area of psychology based jobs. I was just curious whether there is more supple than demand or vice versa? Realistically how easy or difficult is it to get a job once im qualified?
Would a clinical psychologist from New Zealand [with a postgrad diploma, been in private practice for about 20-25years] be able to get a job in the US? Are the degrees the same or is there some sort of extra test or degree you would need to get in order to work there?
I want to be the therapist who is able to know all about and talk through all the different mental disorders. Like, I want to be the person that a bipolar person comes to for behavioral therapy and be able to recognize their signs, help find out what they have, and talk to them and give them help behaviorally. Is this a clinical psychologist or a mental health counselor? Or a social worker? An what degree do I need?
I plan on becoming a clinical psychologist as well as moving to Japan - preferably Tokyo.
(I'll try to get into a study abroad program to ultimately decide, but for the sake of this let's say I've decided.)
I'm a freshman in college and am learning Japanese, until I'll be fluent. I'm planning on maybe going to graduate school in Japan, unless I'll be sure I can get a degree here and be qualified to work there.
Anyway, does doing that for a job there sound like a good idea? like would I make a comfortable living? I barely spend money besides on food and an occasional video game or something.
I considered that Japanese wouldn't prefer a foreign doctor nor are they that open about mental illness, which is why I mentioned I'd treat, for example, US natives that reside there. It seems like a small population, but I'd love to live in Japan and practice some type of psychology. My other option would be research social or developmental psychology, which I think provides more opportunity for me? I'd appreciate your insight on that.
I just have a couple questions regarding the education part of becoming a clinical psychologist
1)What level of degree do you need to be an actual practicing clinical psychologist?
2) What "school" would you recommend?
Okay this is the simulated situation which I'll soon be in.
I have just completed grade 12 in high school, what steps will I have to take to become a clinical psychologist and how many years on each step.
What is the total amount of years until I become a clinical psychologist from leaving high school until becoming a clinical psychologist?
Im going to start my senior year of high school in august and i want to be a clinical psychologist. Some of the best universities which hav psychology as a major are located in the UK. Most sites that i have found say that i need to complete a 3-4 year undergraduate psychology course and have work experience. But what am i supposed to do after this?
About myself: I'm 25, have a bachelors of science in biology (not what I want to do though), and have taken two psych classes, intro to statistics and intro to psychology. I assume maybe I"ll have to take another semester of undergrad psychology classes eventually.
Anyway I need to work for a while, maybe until I'm 29 or 30 to get money. Then I'd like to go to school and get, I assume, a PsyD and eventually be a clinical psychologist.
What do I need to do, from start to finish, to becoming a psychologist and being able to hang a sign out my door that says "shrink for hire"
don't take me literal there
please walk me through it, thank you
