Why don't Australian Psychologists require a Phd to practice?0mr. doodles2012-11-05 05:58:18

How marketable are school psychologists in private practice?1peacock2012-10-21 03:24:03
I know you want to be a psychologist and I'm trying to decide between school and clinical psychology . If I went to work as clinical professor Prefer a teacher because funding for research is very difficult to find. School psychology is attractive because it allows combining clinical psychology / counseling and working with children . However, wages are a little low so I was wondering if a private practice can compensate for this. How does a school psychologist private market practice and is as popular or very rare for school psychologists ?

I am Australian and wonder what is the difference, if any, between college and university in the USA?10RAH RAH2012-10-08 15:31:04
In Australia , the university is the place where a person acquires more practical certification courses like Certificate of hairdressing, hospitality , automotive , electrical , plumbing , gardening , child care , etc. courses covering worker several months to several years. A person may qualify for admission to the university with fewer years of school (grades , eg average and sophomore level ) and fewer signs of what is required for university entrance ( upper grades and graduation high school is essential ) . University is where a degree in psychology degrees , science , education , etc. higher level of nursing and graduate studies as a PhD PhD are achieved. University is the highest academic level in Australia . The university is much less academic .
