Clinical Psychology

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. 
Before you decide on a career in clinical psychology, you need to consider your future goals. 

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. 

Another important consideration is which type of degree is best suited to your needs. The traditional Ph.D. degree emphasizes the role of research in addition to preparing graduates for careers as clinical practitioners. 

Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) degrees are focused on the professional aspects of clinical psychology.
