How much would I REALLY make with a Masters in Psychology?1I am not joe2016-07-13 23:22:42
I ultimately would like to practice, but I understand most states only issue that to doctorates. How much less would I be making with a masters instead of a phd? I know there is wide range, but I live in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, and I just need some guidance and clearer answers. I am willing to move to other states for a better salary. I just don't want to live paycheck to paycheck and to earn a comfortable living. Thanks for any info.[View Answers]
Does anyone understand this?0 복수 고유명사 2012-11-06 02:14:36
Then there was the psychology professor, a Yankee's Yankee and a feminist's feminist, who tells the following story about herself to illustrate that doctorates don't necessarily make you smart. She was driving to a workshop in Atlanta from her home in Ohio. It was about 10 am, and she'd been driving the entire preceding day and night herself, and she was consequently not in the best of tempers as she searched for a motel in which to crash. A Georgia state policeman pulled her over, got out of his cruiser, swaggered up to her driver's window, bent down, and drawled, "Lookie here, darlin',"--uh oh, everybody duck--"Lookie here, darlin', nobody blows through Georgia that fast." Said the feminist Yankee overtired psychology professor: "Sherman did." She says he was not satisfied merely to give her a speeding ticket; he made her follow him fifty miles out of her way to Nowheresburg, GA, and wait at the police station until three in the afternoon for a circuit judge to arrive so that he could explain to her why it wasn't the best idea in the world to be impolite to policemen, who were after all interested only in creating the safest possible environment for everybody including her, etc. etc. The lecture went on for about two hours, she says, after which she was released to drive the fifty miles back to her route and resume her search for someplace to crash.[View Answers]
Apply for graduate school?0brainywaney2012-11-06 01:36:34
I am 23 years old. I am graduating next semester with a bachelors in psychology and human services with a minor in public administration. I have a 3.8 GPA. I would love to get my master or even doctorates in Psychology (clinical or counseling). I have such a passion for psychology! However, the graduate program I am applying for only accept about 4-8 student in a year. I have no working experience in the field of psychology because my husband and I decided I should stay home with my 2 young children as much as possible before I begin working. As an adolescent I did motivational speaking throughout our state high schools and middle schools, but thats all the experience I have. I have not taken the GRE yet, but I have been studying. Between the GRE, GRE subject test, and application fees I will be spending a good chunk of money to apply and we are struggling financially at this time already. The application also asks what clubs or organizations I have been involved which is none since high school and it also ask what awards I have been given. I have been on the deans list several times, but other than that - none. It asks what research I have completed and other than behavioral statistics course I and II - none. I am worried because of my lack of experience that I will not get accepted. Should I try now or wait until I graduate and find a job to use as experience?[View Answers]

What is the next step after MSc Psychology (conversion course)?0lashon2012-11-05 15:59:33
I will be doing an MSc Psychology conversion course which is accredited by BPS but is, however, not specialised. Would I need to do another Master's course, a specialised one (in occupational, health etc.), in order to proceed to a PhD? I've read in the BPS website that if you want to be a chartered member you need to be registered with the BPS and then complete a doctorate or equivalent but it does not say if the accredited course should be specialised.[View Answers]

I had to write an essay for a mid-term..can someone help correct my rough draft?..?0Rosalie2012-11-05 05:46:47
B.F.Skinner(Burrhus Frederic Skinner)was born March 20, 1904, in the small Pennsylvania town of Susquehanna. His father was a lawyer, and his mother a strong and intelligent housewife. His upbringing was old-fashioned and hard-working. Burrhus was an active, unconstrained boy who enjoyed the outdoors. His cultivation was of the old ways and hard working. The tragic point of his childhood life was the death of his brother at the age of 16 of a cerebral aneurysm. Burrhus attended Hamilton College in upstate New York. He didnt fit in very well, not enjoying the fraternity parties or the football games. To make things worse, Burrhus was an atheist at a school that required daily chapel attendance. He wanted to be a writer and got his BA in english. After some traveling, he decided to go back to school, this time at Harvard. He got his masters in psychology in 1930 and his doctorate in 1931, and stayed there to do research until 1936. Burrhus said "I had apparently failed as a writer, but was it not possible that literature had failed me as a method?" in his autobiography: Particulars of my life. In 1936, Burrhus moved to Minneapolis to teach at the University of Minnesota. There he met and soon married Yvonne Blue, they had two daughters. In 1945, he became the chairman of the psychology department at Indiana University. In 1948, he was invited to come to Harvard, where he remained for the rest of his life. He was a very active man, doing research and guiding hundreds of doctoral candidates as well as writing many books. While not successful as a writer of fiction and poetry, he became one of our best psychology writers, including the book Walden II, which is a fictional account of a community run by his behaviorist principles. He became one of the leaders of behaviorism and his work contributed immensely to experimental psychology. He also invented the 'Skinner box,' in which a rat learns to obtain food by pressing a lever. B.F. Skinner also invented the "baby tender." It is important to note that the baby tender is not the same as the "Skinner box," which was used in Skinner's experimental research. He created the enclosed heated crib with a plexiglass window in response to his wife's request for a safer alternative to traditional cribs. B.F. Skinner is famous for his research on operant conditioning and negative reinforcement. He developed a device called the "cumulative recorder," which showed rates of responding as a sloped line. Using this device, he found that behavior did not depend on the preceding stimulus as Watson and Pavlov maintained. Instead, Skinner found that behaviors were dependent upon what happens after the response. Skinner called this operant behavior. Skinner's observation of the effectiveness of incremental training of animals led him to formulate the principles of programmed instruction for human students. For over two decades skinner worked on his book Verbal Behavior. In a fundamental sense, it was an intensive analysis of 'man thinking' and social behaviour. It extended his behaviourist position to the most difficult domains of human activity and aroused considerable controversy. The book is almost entirely theoretical, involving little experimental research in the work itself. Skinner received numerous awards in his life time. He received the National Medal of Science from President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1968. The National Medal of Science is an honor bestowed by the President of the science and engineering who have made important contributions to the advancement of knowledge in the fields of behavioral and social sciences, biology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and physics. Three years later, he received the Gold Medal of the American Psychological Foundation, in which was given to recognize life achievement in and enduring contributions to psychology. In 1972 he was given the Humanist of the Year Award of the American Humanist Association. This award was established to recognize a person of national or international reputation who, through the application of humanist values, has made a significant contribution to the improvement of the human condition. Just eight days before his death, he received the first Citation for Outstanding Lifetime Contribution to Psychology by the American Psychological Association in 1990. B.F.Skinner was was a highly influential American psychologist,author, inventor, advocate for social reform. Skinner gave a new aspect to behavorism that has outstanding contribution to psycholgy and humanity as a whole. B.F.Skinner has and will always be one of the most brilliant American psychologist and an influential exponent of behaviourism.[View Answers]

Is it possible to double-major in psychiatry and psychology?0Georgetta2012-11-05 01:18:01
or would that be a) pointless b) useless or c) redundant because i know (or im pretty sure at least) that for one of them you need a medical degree and for one you need a doctorate or something, im a little fuzzy on the details as i have yet to do much research other than asking people, and id rather have someone tell me 'no your being an idiot, do this...' instead of going and pouring hours of time into research only to find out that i'm being stupid, so answers are much appreciated. also if anyone says 'ask your high-school guidance councilor' they will be yelled at, seeing as how i do not attend high school, and am in fact in the seventh grade and do not have a 'high school guidance counselor' i have a middle-school guidance councilor that is more of a wannabe therapist than a future-planner.[View Answers]
What are the steps to getting a Doctorate Degree?0Cindi2012-11-05 00:47:28
I don't understand the steps needed for getting a Doctorate Degree, such as Ph. D. or Psy. D. I am thinking about being a clinical psychologist, and that requires a Ph. D. in Clinical Psychology or a Psy. D. Would I go do my first two years of college, then year 3-4 would be regular psychology classes to get your bachelors? Then after that I would apply to a psychology program and specialize? I just don't understand all the steps, if you could help it would be great.[View Answers]
