What you need to know to get licensed

What you need to know to get licensed | Reflective Log 2 | Scoop.it
Experts offer a lesson on how to become a licensed psychologist.

 

My Thoughts: This is an excellent article on becoming a licensed psychologist. It goes through multiple steps needed and real life examples. It shows me how difficult it is to become a licensed psychologist, but I know it will be worth it. I have to keep track of so many hours and have an internship and postdoc work. It is a very daunting task to become licensed. This article helps me understand it better so that I can have an idea of what I should keep in mind after getting my PhD. I can't just open my own private practice with a doctoral degree! This article is very worthwhile for anyone planning to be a psychologist.

What Is a Social Psychologist?

Social psychologists study how social influence, social perception and social interaction influence individual and group behavior.

 

My Thoughts: This was a good article for explaining what exactly a social psychologist is. I learned that a social psychologist is different from a stereotypical counseling psychologist. It can be a whole career! It is very research based. Also, it is NOT the same as sociology. This is a great article for someone to read if they want to know more about the profession of social psychology, even if they are just finding out the difference between this and counseling psychology.

The year-long predoctoral internship offers specialized training, unparalleled supervision by experts in the field and clinical experiences that will prepare you for a future in psychology.

 

My Thoughts: This is just one example of a psychology internship program. From investigation into other parts of the related site, it seems to me like this is a worthwhile program and it gives me insight into how an internship program could actually be like. It is definitely something I will think about when I am looking to obtain a PhD. I know internships are necessary for becoming a psychologist and exposure to programs early could be helpful in the future.
