Are Clinical Psychologists Limited to Only Clinical Psychology?

Question by Ello G: Are clinical psychologists limited to only clinical psychology?
Say… If I became a clinical psychologist, but wanted to switch to a counseling psychologist, or industrial psychologist, etc. Could I make the switch right there? Or would I have to go back for those degrees?

Best answer:

Answer by michele
In most states (though not all), psychologists’ licensing is GENERAL. In other words, whether you have trained as a clinical, counseling, or I/O during your doctoral work, you all get the same license – a generic license as a PSYCHOLOGIST (no specializations). The difference comes in the way in which you market your services, which should be based on your training (i.e., those who trained in counseling psychology call themselves “counseling psychologists”).

15 & Pregnant ? Symptoms but No Period for 7 Months. No Way Im 7 Months Pregnant?

Question by : 15 & pregnant ? symptoms but no period for 7 months. No way im 7 months pregnant?
okay. so first i was taking birthcontrol for only a month & the stopped because of the side affects. i didnt have sex for a few months afterwards (january – april) & i havent had my period for 7 months i guess. i know that birthcontrol sometimes delay your next period as soon as you stop but ive heard you get it about 3 months later ? but anyways. i was having sex with my boyfriend since april & im not really positive if im pregnant or not since i dont get my period. ive grown a little belly & gained some weight. ive thrown up 2 times but it was 2 weeks apart & sometimes i get a little heart burn or a burning sensation in my throat when im laying down. i get bad leg cramps when im asleep or just laying down at night. i get tired REALLY easilly when im walking around somewhere. my breast arent sore & i dont pee often so thats kind of throwing me off. if i were to be pregnant id be around 9 to 11 weeks maybe more. i dont really have access to a pregnancy test though so i dont know how to find out. oh & sometimes i can feel a little flutter in my tummy sometimes two different sides of my tummy. & i look like im 4 months pregnant. but i think a lot of it is from bloating since i am constipated for a couple weeks. i just thought it wouldve went down already. im 15 & my boyfriend is 16 & his family is VERY religious. my parents on the other hand are VERY judgemental. sooo i really dont know what to do , please help !!

Psychology vs. Psychiatry & Pre-Med?

Question by Izzy E: Psychology vs. Psychiatry & Pre-Med?
Please clarify if there are other options besides medical school in order to work clinically in the psychology field. I intended to study pre-med as an undergrad, enter med-school and receive an MD in order to be a psychiatrist. But is there another way I can be a clinical practitioner (e.g., work in the psychology/psychiatry field authorized to administer medicine to patients, rather than just counsel?)

Thank you.

Best answer:

Answer by drdr
only an MD can prescribe drugs (and some psychiatric nurse practitioners); and, “just counsel” is pejorative in nature; generally speaking, psychologists may have a greater depth of knowledge of behavior than psychiatrists; drugs are at times the problem and not the answer
