Hey Dear,

Good to see your level of curiosity in the subject area Why not you can surely undergo some training in your graduation itself.It is up to you as to what training you want to get into. Mostly when you are in your graduation and have taken up Psychology and if interested to do a training in the same people will not allow you to handle their cases purely because you are not trained enough to handle case yet and surely even they would not want to put the name of their organization at stake for you. No matter how good you are they can only let you do observations for the same.

But you can certainly try some NGO's or the Non Governmental Organizations for doing a voluntary work as they will allow you to be a part of their organization and they will even give you a certificate for the same.
You can try in any of the NGO that is near to your house and be a part of the organization for a long time. You can even do summer internship as well in some organizations. But is up to you if you want to do or not as in many colleges it is not a compulsory option. But it will definitely help you when you apply for your Masters course in the same.
You can even attend some workshops in the area related to Psychology. There are many organizations that organize these workshops which you can attend by simply paying the required fees. Also if you attend these workshop attend the workshops that are related to some tests and testing related area. This is a really good option as it will give you expose in some of the tests that are used by Psychologists and will be really of great help to you in future.So look for some testing workshops and go for it!

Best Wishes!

I am happy to know your interest in Psychology.
Well, at graduate level, I recommend following activities that will help you enhance skills at postgraduate study:
- determine specialization you wish to pursue- counseling psychology, clinical psychology, industrial psychology or educational psychology.
- study well and score well in the graduation that will help you get admission in top colleges that offer psychology course in your preferred organization. Read psychology books, theories of personality, counseling and social psychology. Read History of philosophy, Introduction to Psychology- Baron and Baron, Social Psychology Baron and other relevant books.
- identify psychologists around and practice under any one psychologist. Or you may work as volunteer with not-for-profit organization. If you are interested in taking up industrial psychology, take up internship in any corporates.
- You may identify trainer or life coach or man agent expert and work as assistant with him or her. Training skills, communication skills are very important for psychologists.

As far as trainings are concerned, based on your specialization, you may take up training in following areas:
Take certificate training in Any one therapeutic approach like cognitive behavior therapy, dance therapy, laughter therapy, neurolinguistic programming etc.
Psychometric assessments-16PF, MMPI, Bell inventory, IQ test, FIRO-B etc.
Alternate approaches- hypnotherapy, Reiki, handwriting analysis etc.
Take up coaching training( lnternational coaching federation) or take training on communication, relationship.
