Helping others is one of the main
attractions of this profession. Many
Psychologists treasure this aspect the
most because it feels fulfilling,
gratifying and meaningful.
Psychologists are a step closer to understanding
the human mind. Psychology develops self
knowledge including understanding why we feel
certain desires or emotions and why we do things
the way we do. This opens up opportunities for self
improvement by being able to identify weaknesses
and learning how to address them. Psychology can
help people overcome personal barriers in order
to live life at their fullest potential.
Psychologists have the potential to earn
high salaries. they can also be self
employed and their jobs can branch off
to many other care related jobs, providing
Dealing with client's intensely emotional issues on a daily basis can become exhausting and stressful. It may lead to an emotional
"burnout." Psychologists must constantly suppress their own emotions and focus on that of their clients. Psychologists also often practice in private settings. Much of their work may be confidential which prohibits any discussion to colleagues at work. This isolating feeling can cause great stress. Clients depend on psychologists for all the answers to their problems and can often become very displeased if they believe they are not making any progress. A failed case can cause an overwhelming sense of failure. Psychologists must be very careful to take care of their own well being as well as their clients'.
Although normal hours are established, psychologists
have to deal with client issues at unexpected times. Some
clients are not able to meet during normal business hours
due to their own schedules. In other cases, they might be
called during off-hour or weekends to meet with clients
who need help or are facing crisis situations.
In addition to obtaining a doctoral degree in psychology
(that may take up to 12 years), there are also specific
training licenses that must be acquired.
