Lightner Witmer Ancient Clinical Psychology If [a person] wishes to become good and noble, let him seek out someone who will help him by disclosing his every action which is wrong…For we must not leave the diagnosis of these passions to ourselves but we must entrust it to others…This mature person who can see these vices must reveal with frankness all our errors. Next, when he tells us some fault, let us first be immediately grateful to him; then let us go aside and consider the matter by ourselves; let us censure ourselves and try to cut away the disease not only to the point where it is not apparent to others, but so completely as to remove its roots from our soul.

What does a modern clinical psychologist do? A clinical psychologist by definition works with sick patients who are afflicted by mental health disorders (As opposed to a counseling psychologist who is more of a problem solver). Clinical psychology focuses on patients who need long term, more intensive treatment, for their mental health disorder. Typically they are employed in mental health clinics, hospital settings, and prisons. Counseling Psychology •Subfield of Clinical Psychology •The word counseling means to seek out help or advice from another person. •Therefore, counseling psychology helps people resolve personal issues such as: family matters, work related problems, or school concerns.
