  • I'm thinking of becoming a Clinical Psychologist. πŸ™‚

  • i'm doing my undergrad in psychology at the moment, it's pretty intense, and very competitive when getting into your postgraduate studies (which you have to do to become a registered psychologist, in australia anyway)… but i think it's a good career πŸ™‚ just try it out, for those who are wondering

  • is this different in the UK?

  • You're awesome!
    Thank you πŸ™‚

  • I just checked out 2 books at the library and am researching all kinds of this stuff. I want to be a clinical and student psychologist and an elementary special education teacher πŸ™‚ A lot of my friends like this field. But some like social workers and similar things. I really love this field and I don't care about fame or anything but I really think this is a "worth it" job! πŸ˜€

  • @deanwarrengc Just ask the guys who flew themselves into the world trade centers!

  • Can you become a specialist for eating disorders with a clinical psychology degree?

  • so a master's degree is not enough?

  • Me too πŸ™‚

  • …Might want to spell that Psychologist right….. (i didn't spell it right the whole time either lol)

  • I'm a freshman in highschool and this video was very helpful. I am looking to be a clinical psychologist and am starting early to take classes that will prepare me for colleges.

  • do u people think 29 is too old to endeavor towards a clinical psychologist profession? I mean a doctorates typically takes 10-12 years right?

  • Doctorates in Psychology (specifically clinical) take an additional 2-3 years (including the 1yr internship) after earning a Master's degree. So total post graduate work is roughly 4-5 years. However it is not just all class work, a lot of that time is spend doing counseling and practicing. 10-12 years is more of a Medical Doctor, which is 3-4 years of medical school, then internship then residency(which can be one in the same as interning) then a staff member at a hospital.

  • There's some great careers in these fields.

  • Thank you.

  • Thank you.
