What is Clinical Psychology?
Clinical Psychology is the branch of psychology, the study of the mind, in which analyzes mental ailments and disabilities, and provides treatments
Examples of mental ailments or disorders are, but not to, Schizophrenia, Multi-personality Disorder, Obedience Dynamic Disorder (ODD), Depression, Anorexia, Bi-Polar, Insomnia, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, etc.
We Can Help...
As Clinical Psychologists, it is our job to help those who are not sick physically, but mental. We heal the wounds beneath the skin.
What we do...
What you think we do.
What we think we do.
What society thinks we do.
What we really do.
As Clinical Psychologists, it is our job to unlock the secrets of ailment.
Our occupation includes us to do the following:
Observe clients to find signs of mental deficiency, or odd behavior.
May work with them individually, or in groups.
Develop treatment plans
which include the type of treatment, the frequency, and the duration of it.
Do group counseling sessions for psychological and emotional problems
(such as stress, drug abuse, or family problems. )
Answers clients questions and respond to statements and reactions
, evaluate effectiveness of counseling and treatment, and revise plans in order to fit treatment
Reviews records
to obtain information on medical, psychological, emotional, or other problems
Conduct and analyze psychological tests
to get information on a person’s intellect, achievements, interests, and personality
Use treatment methods
, like psychotherapy, hypnosis, behavior improvements, stress reduction therapy, and role-playing therapy.
Refer to reference materials
(like textbooks, manuals, and journals) to diagnose symptoms, and create treatments
Help clients gain insight
, define goals, plan action to achieve effective personal and social development and adjustment.
Clinical Psychology has a stable outlook of 9% growth rate annually.
This is an estimated 195 job opening per year!
Currently 4,908 are employed in this field, the
majority working for public or private schools while 34% are self-employed and 13% work for the state of government.
For most of the day, at least one-third of it, will be spend sitting inside ventilated buildings. There is minimal to no walking or heavy lifting in this occupation, however the work hours are irregular. There are no set times and on occasions we'll have to work on weekends.
Welcome... To the Psychologist's Den!
The Good, the bad, and the just plain ugly
The Good...
Clinical Psychology may seem like a difficult occupation, however it never fails to pay off! There are various benefits such an
opportunity of self-employment
coming up with new and creative solution
to a clients dilemma, and just the simple knowledge of
knowing you helped someone overcome a difficult problem
can be very rewarding!
The Bad
Along with benefits come faults within this specific profession. In Clinical Psychology,
insurance require that psychologists keep detailed client records.
In short, it means that there will be a
lot of paperwork involved.
The Just Plain Ugly
No occupation is the perfect one, and clinical psychology is now different. Psychologists are asked to
work long hours with clients who are demanding, uncooperative,
Clinical Psychology isn't quite how the media produces; with a client lying on a sofa as they tell you about their tough day. Psychologist often
face clients will rebel against therapy and refuse all honesty
to the psychologist in which leads to the
risk of burning out.
Employing a Rose
I'm considered both a "thinker" and "helper".
I find satisfaction in helping others in various situations, using my analytical mind to solve challenging predicaments.
I tend to
use mathematical and scientific concepts
to help decipher foreign concepts and will find pleasure in observing, learning, and or evaluating a situation.
I feel most rewarded, though, when I'm able to help someone who is in distress
. However, I prefer my own private practices and to talk with others one-on-one.
Skills and Talents
My skills and talents are comprised of, but are not limited to:
Comprehension skill
Sympathetic skill
Interpretation and analyzing
Mathematical and Scientific strategies and skills
Learning Strategies.
Discussing emotional topics with others
Giving appropriate advice whether it is for a real-life scenario or academic.
So based on my skills, interests, and talents... What occupation is the one right for me? Well...That would be...
