As a school psychologist, how likely is it that I would not only test the students, but work with them following a diagnosis?

I want to be a school psychologist, because it involves my three biggest passions: children, learning, and psychology. I ask this question because I have heard that in some instances, school psychologists that work in school systems are only able to administer tests, but are not able to provide the student with the help they need on a one-on-one interaction. #school-psychology #psychology #child-psychology #psychology-education #learning-and-development

Can I become a psychologist/therapist in another foreign country?

I want to know if I can be or get a job as a psychologist/therapist in another foreign country. I would love to travel to another country to do what I like to do and help out others with their problems. I am mostly interested in Japan and Korea because I know there are teens who are going through stress who can't seem to seek the help or support that they need in order to overcome their stress or other problems. #psychology #school-psychology #languages #foreign

In which career in the psychology/therapy fields would ASL and foreign languages be most valued?

I speak 2 languages (including English) fluently and 3 more at varying degrees of functional fluency. One language I know that I think is particularly unique is American Sign Language, which I learned in school and at an academic summer camp. Now that I'm thinking about potential career choices in the fields of psychology and therapy, I wonder where my language skills would be most valued. I mean this in the sense of the value of being able to help a community with less resources available to them, and also in terms of the financial value this career path would have to me. Especially, I wonder if I could make a big difference by working with people in the Deaf community--are there already a lot of people doing that? I really want to work in therapy much more than in psychology, as far as that makes any difference in answering this question. Thanks in advance! #psychology #language #social-psychology #child-psychology #school-psychology #languages #moral-psychology #american-sign-language

I am pursuing a major in psychology this fall, what would be a wise minor to get along with a psychology major?

I understand that it is difficult to get a good career in psychology without at least master's degree (even doctorate, PhD, or PsyD). I want to make myself employable while I am in the progress of getting one of those higher degrees in psychology. I want to minor in something else, so I have multiple schemas of knowledge and different skill sets to make myself availble to psyhology related jobs to ready myself for a career in the future. #psychology #therapy #counseling #clinical-psychology #college-minor #psychiatry #mental-health #school-psychology

What are some career routes in child psychology? What can I expect from that career on a day to day basis?

As a graduating high school senior, I will be attending a community college to complete my basic requirements to transfer to a four year university. Although i am a little shaky with choosing a major, one of my interests is child psychology. I feel that with my own experiences with personal struggles will help me relate to those with similar issues. Through the whole process of choosing a major, I would like to hear some real life advise to better be sure whether or not I could continue career path. To be more specific, I would like to know the general high and low points of being a child psychologist and the type of work done. Thank you. #psychology #social-psychology #child-psychology #school-psychology
