"When a problem comes along, study it until you are completely knowledgeable. Then find that weak spot, break the problem apart, and the rest will be easy." - Norman Vincent Peale (1898-1993), American Author
HOW PSYCHOLOGISTS DIFFER FROM OTHER THERAPISTS
Psychologists are among the best and most rigorously trained mental health professionals. Psychologists complete doctorate level coursework, several years of clinical rotations/practicums, a year long predoctoral internship, & a year long postdoctoral fellowship.
In addition to having the highest level of training, unlike other therapists (LICSW, LPCC, LMFT, etc.), psychologists are licensed to complete psychological assessments (often with normative data to help you understand and target a specific concern) to fully understand a concern. Psychologists often see this initial assessment as the key to designing an informed, individualized, and focused treatment plan.
Psychologists also receive extensive training in research in order to ensure only empirically supported treatments are used.
Psychologists often have medical / healthcare backgrounds and work closely with physicians and other medical providers when biological interventions are incorporated into treatment (e.g., medications).
