Clinical Psychologist

Jump to: navigation, search

Clinical psychologists treat people whose thought patterns and behaviour are a threat to their own and others’ wellbeing. They diagnose, assess and provide treatment for people with a wide range of conditions such as depression, eating disorders and addiction. Clinical psychologists provide psychotherapy, psychological testing, and diagnosis of mental illness. They generally train within four primary theoretical orientations: psychodynamic, humanistic, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), and systems or family therapy. Many continue clinical training in post-doctoral programs in which they might specialize in disciplines such as psychoanalytic approaches or child and adolescent treatment modalities.
