Clinical psychology is concerned with the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders.
Most clinical psychologists have a doctorate degree in clinical psychology, although opportunities also exist for those with a Master's degree.
Do you want to work with children, adolescents, or adults? Are you interested in having your own therapy practice?
Such factors can play an important role in your choice of a clinical graduate program or area of specialization.
Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) degrees are focused on the professional aspects of clinical psychology.
