COUNSELING PSYCHOLOGY

Counseling psychologists, like clinical psychologists, are interested in the treatment of mental disorders. The main difference between the two is that counseling psychologists are concerned primarily with "normal" problems of adjustment or challenge, such as choosing a career, experiencing academic stress, or coping with marital problems. Counseling psychologists do counseling/ psychotherapy, teaching, and scientific research with individuals of all ages, families, and organizations (e.g., schools, hospitals, businesses). They are particularly concerned with the role of education and work in an individual's functioning, and with the interaction between individuals and the environments in which they live. These psychologists often work in academic settings, community mental health centers, hospitals, or private clinics.
