Who are clinical psychologists?
Clinical psychologists work with people of all ages, most commonly in health centres,
clinics and hospitals. Clinical psychologists use their knowledge of behaviour, emotions
and thinking, to help people with psychological problems. They are not medical doctors
and do not prescribe drugs.
All clinical psychologists have to study for a general degree in psychology first. Once
graduated they are usually required to get work experience in research or clinical
settings before being considered for clinical training. If selected for an accredited
training programme, they go through another three years of clinical psychology training
leading to a professional doctorate.
Nowadays most trainee psychologists are salaried employees of a health authority. They
are taught on a recognised training course and see clients under regular supervision by
a qualified and experienced psychologist.
