For now, I am only a high school student with a few years left before she has to apply even to a college or university, however, as there are some complexities that exist I hope to do, I approach this community for answers. Over time I will talk to a counselor about this, but I would like an idea of ​​what is possible and absent information on the subject. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I want to study Forensic Psychology (eventually, I'd like a Ph.D), however, I also want to run a private practice, therapy focuses on child and adolescent behavior, sexual deviant and trauma-related disorders. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus The FP degree gives me a background in behavior / deviant sexual disorders (psychopathy, sexual sadism, sadistic personality disorder, etc.), its causes and behavior leading to. As anyone with a basic knowledge of the issues known, these syndromes have a tendency to start in childhood and adolescence. Not only appear at the age of 18. It is also a known fact that once adulthood is reached, the recovery rate is almost nonexistent (the rates are low before that, but not that bad). MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Therefore, I want to study and get a degree in child psychology, counseling, social work, clinical psychology, or a combination of the two (preferably Child Psychology, Ph.D and Counseling). Although FP PhD program'm looking meet licensing requirements for my state, I would like the training and certification to work with children. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus The problem: I can not find a school that houses two programs. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I am, however, able to find two separate institutions that house each (Forensic Psychology and Child Psychology - or another of the list). I want to pursue both degrees simultaneously in two different schools. Emotionally, I'm sure I can handle the stress, pressure and responsibility that comes with this. It's the details that I'm having trouble digging. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus In essence, these are my questions. I would like to be answered by someone with experience or someone with knowledge of the subject. Now I realize that you can only get help for a finical. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus NOTE: I'm not looking for credit transfer. I'm looking to examine two different levels. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Permission: Do I have to get approval from each school? Do you know? If you need permission, it is difficult to win? MedlinePlus Communication: The two schools communicate or is my responsibility to communicate information MedlinePlus? Programming: The two schools help with programming or is that my responsibility? MedlinePlus How: What are the steps to make this happen? MedlinePlus Any other information:. Any other information you may have MedlinePlus MedlinePlus To give a better idea, this is a rough plan as to what I'll do: MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Get a scholarship and / or help for college more expensive. To pay for the other, use savings accounts, funds, jobs part time, and other means of earning promised. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Get the BA (possibly joint BA / MA program) in one of them, leave and seek career opportunities in that field. Do not be picky. Use this money to pay for Masters and Doctoral programs. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Work in doctoral programs. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I am open to both the idea of ​​going to two schools and a physical line physical one. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I fully expect not to finish both at the same time, however, simultaneously examining not only help you get the two titles faster than if done one after the other, but will better prepare me for my eventual field study and practice. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Thanks, MedlinePlus psyire

To make a long story short , a psychologist does not and can not get two doctorates in psychology . Graduate programs are structured loosely enough so that the student can learn the basics of all the fields you mention in a Ph.D. agenda .

Usually studied in continuing education classes after PhD MedlinePlus MedlinePlus The accepted way for more formal educational training in a specialty discipline after the doctorate has earned is to take a paid fellowship which lasts one year and for several years .
