A New Haven psychologist will typically conduct scientific studies on the behavior and function of the brain and work with individuals. Psychologists may choose to center their practice around working with certain types of people such as children, married couples, or those with specific mental disorders such as eating disorders.
When They Can Strip You of Your Career
Becoming a New Haven psychologist requires multiple years of schooling and ultimately a license. After obtaining a bachelor’s degree, students may choose to pursue a master’s degree or simply move on to the doctorate level. Here, a psychologist has two paths they can choose from. They can become either a PhD or PsyD. The former is well suited to individuals who plan to focus their talents on research while the PsyD prepares students to see clients in a clinical setting.
After the completion of your doctoral degree you will then need to apply for a license. This means in New Haven that you must complete an application form, gain one year of supervised work experience, and then submit all verifying documents to the Connecticut Department of Public Health. This will allow you to take the Connecticut psychology licensing exam. All in all this may take up to 8-10 years of schooling and clinical experience, however all of it could be lost if your license is threatened in situations such as:
Revealing confidential information including facts and data regarding a client or information a client has revealed.
Any type of fraudulent claims for services to a health insurance company, health service plan or third party payor.
Sexual misconduct relations with a client within the allotted time span of them being your client.
