Marina’s Answer

With the civil uprising and Black Lives Matter movement happening right now, I believe forensic psychology will be a growing profession as the United States rethinks and rebuilds the [broken] police and prison systems. There are not enough non-violent responders to advocate for people caught up in the justice system, especially Black, Indigenous and other people of color.

Depending on what specifically about this field interests you, some jobs to consider:
-Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor
-Juvenile Offenders Counselor
-Research Assistant
-Victim Advocate
-Court Liaison
-Jury Consultant

My hope is that by the time you graduate, the U.S. will prioritize mental health and restorative justice to help people and communities in need. And give you space to do the job of your dreams.

Sarah’s Answer

Hi Loreale,

Forensic psychology encompasses more than just criminal court. If you are interested in pursuing a doctorate and becoming a licensed psychologist (not an LPC or masters level clinician), forensic psychologists are in high demand. Their jobs entail working with divorce and child custody, assessment, severance of parental rights, adoptions, and family reunifications.

Hi Laureale,

At the top of my head, usually the track is to be a Court Liaison or a Law Enforcement Officer.

Rachel’s Answer

If you are considering additional schooling, two options would be getting a PhD to become a clinical psychologist or going to medical school to become a psychiatrist. Both are very challenging but gratifying fields.
