#PHSfit Career of the Day: Psychologist

There are numerous ways to be a psychologist, and most involve earning a doctorate after completing a four-year bachelor's degree. The typical counseling psychologist either has a doctor of psychology or doctor of philosophy, and meets with clients in either individual or family, or sometimes group sessions, to talk through current problems, the origin of those problems, and possible solutions to their problems. Some psychologists use tests to understand the cases or make recommendations for court cases. Psychologists have high ethical standards and need to have the courage and social dexterity to challenge their clients for the purpose of encouraging growth and change toward their treatment goals. If you are interested in a career in psychology, consider undergraduate majors in psychology, sociology, human development, or criminal justice.
