Provide me with every point so that i can decide
CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST:-Clinical psychologists assess and treat people with psychological problems. They may act as therapists for people who are experiencing normal psychological crises (e.g., grief) or for individuals suffering from chronic psychiatric disorders. Some clinical psychologists are generalists who work with a wide variety of populations, while others work with specific groups such as children, the elderly, or those with specific disorders.COUNSELLING PSYCHOLOGIST:-Counseling psychologists do many of the same things that clinical psychologists do. However, counseling psychologists tend to focus more on persons with adjustment problems rather than on persons suffering from severe psychological disorders. They may be trained in psychology departments or in education departments. Counselling psychologists are employed in academic settings, college counselling centers, community mental health centers.NEURO PSYCHOLOGIST:Neuro psychologists study the relation between human physical systems and behaviour. These psychologists work in stroke and head injury programs, oncology programs, and medical practices specializing in neurology.TEACHING & RESEARCHIf you're interested in teaching undergraduate, master's-level, or doctoral-level students, you will probably work in a university setting, where you will probably also do research. If an individual is not interested in teaching and wants to focus on research, he/she can work for government agencies (for example, the Centers for Disease Control) or for private research organizations. To work as a psychologist in these settings, one would need a Ph.D. in psychology.CRIMINOLOGY & LEGAL PSYCHOLOGISTCriminology and legal psychologists work in prisons, juvenile centers and special hospitals. They provide a range of rehabilitative programmes through individual as well as group therapy.INDUSTRIAL/ORGANIZATIONAL PSYCHOLOGISTI/O psychologists (as they are usually called) are concerned with the relationships between people and their work environments. They may develop new ways to increase workplace productivity or be involved in personnel selection. They are employed in business, government agencies, factories, industrial set-ups corporate houses and academic establishments.SPORTS PSYCHOLOGISTSSports psychologists are concerned with the psychological factors that improve athletic performance. They also look at the effects of exercise and physical activity on psychological adjustment and health. Sports psychologists typically work in academic settings and/or as consultants for sports teams.EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGISTSEducational psychologists attempt to understand the basic aspects of human learning and to develop materials and strategies for enhancing the learning process. For example, an educational psychologist might study reading and then develop a new technique for teaching reading. Educational psychologists are typically trained in departments of education (known as departments of psychology) and employed in colleges and universities.SCHOOL COUNSELLINGSchool counselors work with children who are troubled, helping such children function more effectively with their peers and teachers, deal with family problems, etc. They work at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTSSchool psychologists do a lot of testing--mostly of children who are encountering difficulties in school--to try to diagnose the problem and, sometimes, to suggest ways of dealing with the problem. School psychologists are typically trained in departments of education (vs. departments of psychology) and work in public school systems.AGENCY / COMMUNITY COUNSELLINGGraduate programs in agency or community counseling train you to do counselling in human service agencies in the local community--for example, in community mental health centers. They may also train you to administer a limited number of psychological tests e.g. vocational interest tests).The work is similar to that done by a person with a master's or doctoral degree in clinical or counseling psychology: psychotherapy and, perhaps, limited psychological testing.SOCIAL WORKAnother career option to consider if you're interested in counseling is social work. As is true with other disciplines, there are a variety of allied fields in social work. Social workers who practice psychotherapy are usually called either clinical social workers or psychiatric social workers.Clinical social workers are trained to diagnose and treat psychological problems. Psychiatric social workers provide services to individuals, married couples, families, and small groups. They work in mental health centers, counseling centers, sheltered workshops, hospitals, and schools. They may also have their own private practice.
The psychologists work on a number of areas based on their profile and the kind on industry that they are working in. Below I have mentioned their work areas:
The psychologists work on their research and study the various theories and models of psychology. They also work on the development of the new models to bring innovation in this field. The psychologists tend to experiment a lot with their theories so that they can prove them and derive the results. The research and development is an important area when the psychologists are working in the universities and the research centres. The innovation needs to be constantly worked on so that the field can grow as a whole.
The psychologists usually get associated with the academic institutions and provide their services to the students. They also provide behavioral counseling to the students which is of great help in uplifting the motivation levels of the students and bring more confidence and zeal in them to work more. They deliver guest lectures also in the schools and colleges to share their knowledge and help the students in learning.
The psychologists often work with the health sector in the hospitals and clinics and help the patients in getting out of depression and other psychological issues. This requires them to work with specific age group of people as per their specialty and provide a valuable contribution in treating the people.
