Hello and WELCOME to PsychAssist. One of our most popular articles (and most popular YouTube video)is the 6 jobs for a psychology graduate straight out of University. This article has helped tens of thousands of psychology graduate find their way in this career path. However, there were many that would ask us, “but what if I don’t want to do anything clinical? What can I do then?” This is why we thought we’d write this article, to give those who want to follow a different path, but still using their psychology degree.
It’s that time of year again. You know that air of optimism from Psychology Graduates feeling confident that this is “Their Year” to get onto the Clinical Psychology Doctorate. Nevertheless if you’re a recent graduate (and anything like I was), you probably have never heard of the Clinical Psychology Doctorate. This inspired us to make a timeline for all you “new” Psychology Graduates to the application season. Within this article we will discuss each stage of the Clinical Psychology Doctorate and when you are likely to hear from the different Universities.
I hear a lot of Psychology Graduates and Students speak about what it takes to be an Assistant Psychologist. You hear so many different answers to this question; however not a lot about the mind-set you develop as an Assistant Psychologist. Most Assistant Psychologists find it difficult to acknowledge that there thought processes and thinking has changed considerably since they first took on the role as an Assistant. This gave us the idea of researching the main mental paradigm shifts nearly all Assistant Psychologists go through to give Students & Graduates an idea of what’s to come.
