This prediction has received support in a case studies and open trials with a variety of diagnoses. Expanding the standard protocols Shapiro, additional applications have been developed in clinical practice by experts and consultants in a number of specialty areas. As with all treatments for most of these disorders, little controlled research has been conducted, a state of affairs evident in an evaluation report by a task force set in motion by the Clinical Division of the American Psychological Association Chambless, Baker, Baucom, Beutler, Calhoun, Crits-Christoph, et al. This report revealed that only about a dozen complaints, such as specific phobias and headaches had empirically well-supported treatments.
Tuesday, October 27, 5: Information on Clinical Psychology Dear Dr. Mike I am currently a student rat the university of North Carolina at Wilmington and I am doing a research paper on clinical psychology and was wonder if you could answer some questions for me about the filed of clinical psychology.
I just need some basic info as to how you got into the career that you are currently in and what is required of a clinical psychologist.
If it was not too much trouble could you please just send me some basic info on your field and some personal info as to why you chose this career. Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
Clinical psychology has evolved as a specialty within psychology, which is very broad and basically covers the science of behavior and human mental experience.
Psychology spans a broad number of areas, ranging from child development thinking, language, etc. In most states, "clinical psychologists" are licensed, at the doctoral level Ph. Some have licenses or certificates which are for work in "exempt" settings like schools and government agencies, where they work only under supervision rather than independently.
Patients were covered for much of the cost by insurance companies, and research showed that providing mental health services was a cost-effective way to keep employees healthy, productive and happy.
Lately, however, much has changed since health care has become "managed" by insurance companies, rather than left up to the doctors and therapists.
OK, are you writing my biography? Everything about people fascinates me. The way we talk, and walk, and express our feelings, and our ideas, to name a few things which are worthy of real reflection, for me at least. And people like to be heard. In high school I worried about normal high school stuff, dating, hanging out, being a rock star, things like that.
But I sampled all kinds of courses my first year at a good liberal arts college, studying music and philosophy and psychology, mostly. In a humongous lecture hall, as we sat back in our seats the first of 3 professors taking turns teaching this class walked in front of the stage and to the lecturn.
He calmly said "CS" and shot off a gun into the air. A minute later he did it again, and again we jumped. Finally he paused a moment and calmly said again "CS". The next professor did a crazy "turkey dance" onstage, and spoke about "species-specific responses". The third professor talked about about mental processes, mental illness, and the history of psychological testing and psychotherapy.
I worked first as a volunteer, and then in a community for schizophrenics, where I was called a "social worker" and I ran a newspaper which was reported by, typed, and distributed by "de-institutionalized mental patients".
I taught them how to work in corporate settings, and I produced music and photography in my spare time. I dimly remember spare time.
And then finally, I was ready. I applied to a dozen or so programs and was lucky enough to have been accepted to several.
In graduate school I focused on my continuing interests in psychotherapy, language, thinking, and interpersonal relationships. And my friends still refer to me as "my shrink".
I followed my heart and my instincts. Sometimes it comes early, sometimes it takes a while. And I learn more all the time. One other quick suggestion: There are many aspects of clinical psychology reflected across my web pages, but one in particular may be useful to your pursuit.
