  4. 4. Who is a psychologist? ▰ A psychologist is a trained mental health professional who helps people learn healthy ways to handle mental health challenges. They can help people living with specific conditions, like depression or anxiety, or those who are going through a tough time in life, like grieving the loss of a loved one. They undergo years of education and training to be able to provide a range of mental health services.
  5. 5. What does a psychologist do? ▰ Psychologists study and help treat people’s cognitive, emotional, and social processes and behaviors. One of their main goals is to evaluate and understand their clients’ thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. They go about this by: • Identifying behavioral and emotional patterns • Diagnosing disorders • Making referrals • Coming up with appropriate treatment plans
  6. 6. ▰ Psychologists may work with clients in a private practice or in other settings, such as schools, hospitals, community health centers, prisons, nursing homes, or rehabilitation centers. They may also do research and conduct studies in their field. ▰ Psychologists treat mental health issues by providing counseling and psychotherapy, which is also known as talk therapy. However, some focus only on research or teaching and don’t work with patients. ▰ Unlike psychiatrists, psychologists are not medical doctors. That means that in most states, they cannot write prescriptions or perform medical procedures. What does a psychologist do?

  8. 8. When do we need a psychologist? ▰ There are a number of reasons that you might want to consult with a psychologist. You should reach out if you relate to any of the following signs: • You have thoughts, emotions, or behaviors that seem out of control and are negatively affecting your relationships, work, or overall sense of well- being. • You’re struggling to deal with life issues, such as illness, death of a loved one, divorce, or problems at work. • Your use of drugs or alcohol is interfering with your health, emotions, relationships, or responsibilities. • You need an unbiased and caring person to help you sort out your emotions. • You feel hopeless to the extent that life no longer seems worth living.
  9. 9. 1. The reward of helping people overcome their challenges. One of the top reasons psychologists cite that they enjoy their careers is that they're able to help other people improve the quality of their lives. Many people throughout the world struggle with disabling mental disorders and disabilities. Pyschologists help these individuals learn to cope with their disorders and disabilities and overcome mental and emotional challenges. While being a psychologist can be stressful it times, it's also a very gratifying and fulfilling occupation. 2. Flexible work schedules. While many psychologists pull long hours, once you've established your own practice your schedule becomes very flexible. You're able to set your own hours, come and go when you want and have ample vacation time. Most psychologists report one of the aspects of their job they enjoy the most is the ability to spend time with their family and friends. Even though psychologists working in hospitals and clinics don't have a much flexibility in their work schedule, they still report having a lot of control over their schedules and plenty of time to dedicate to their family and personal activites. Advantages of being a psychologist
  10. 10. 3. High earning potential. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, on average psychologists working full-time earn between $50,000 and $100,000 a year. Those who work part-time obviously earn less but they still earn a respectable amount. Psychologists who are able to run a successful private practice can earn up to $200,000 a year and psychiatrists (a field closely related to psychology) average between $150,000 and $200,000 a year. Of course, money alone shouldn't be your motivation for becoming a psychologist but earning a descent living is an attractive benefit. 4. Ability to work for yourself. Becoming a psychologist is a great career choice for those with an entreprenuerial spirit. Many psychologists go on to establish their own private therapy practices once they get a little experience under their belt and have proven themselves as competent professionals. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 35 percent of psychologists are self- employed – many of these owning and running their own practices. While being self- employed isn't for everyone, it give you complete control over your time and your earning potential. Cont.
  11. 11. 1.Dealing with clients can be stressful and draining. The biggest reward of being a psychologist is often the biggest challenge of being a psychologist – helping people overcome and deal with their mental and emotional struggles. The fact of the matter is, dealing other people's problems on a daily basis is difficult. Most of us have a hard enough time wrapping our mind around our own problems, let alone everyone else. Psychologists have to learn how to help their clients find effective and productive methods for dealing with their struggles without taking them on themselves. Successful psychologists must learn to separate their work life and personal life and practice effective stress management techniques. Disadvantages of being a psychologist
  12. 12. Cont. 2. Not on is your schedules flexible, it can also be quite erractic. One of the advantages of being a psychologist is that your schedule can be quite flexible, especially if you run your own practice. At the same time, psychologists are often on call and must deal with client issues that arise at the most inconvenient times. It's not uncommon for psychologists to meet in evenings with clients who work all day and can't meet during normal business hours, or be called out of bed to help a client that's facing a crisis situation.
  13. 13. Cont. 3.Having to set up your own practice. Over a third of psychologists are self employed. Many of these own and operate their own practices. Launching a psychology practice is a daunting task, and keeping it going is also challenging. In addition to finding an office, acquiring necessary equipment and finding clients, psychologists must also purchase malpractice insurance, deal with business taxes, set up a reliable document management system, and deal with never ending billing issues.
