Can you provide me with detail description
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!
