Does Social Work Training include Domestic Abuse?2madiha2017-05-02 00:09:46
I would like to know does the social work degree include any type of domestic abuse training, to prepare you for dealing with adults and children who may be living in this situation. There are many skills social workers require, however, dealing with domestic abuse requires specialist interpersonal skills, for example; empathy, sympathy, listening, awareness and understanding of the psychology, behaviour and issues associated with domestic violence etc...to help support adults who may be experiencing domestic violence and have children living in the home. It would be interesting to know if you think you were well trained to deal with this type of situation, would you know your approach, strategies, signposting etc... and if not, do you think it is relevant to be included? I will be studying MA Social work (SEP '10) and would like to investigate this for my dissertation, I would be very grateful for some answers. Thank You.[View Answers]

Speech-language pathology degree?1sharee2016-07-13 23:22:53
I am planning on attending Texas Tech next year and I have my heart set on being a speech-language pathologist. Tech has a masters program for speech pathology, but no bachelors degree in it. The website is very vague on what the prerequisites are for getting my masters in speech pathology, so I was wondering what I should major in. Also, Tech only offers linguistics as a minor, not a major. Would it be ok to major in psychology with a minor in linguistics? I am so confused, please help :) Also, any other information on speech pathology would be greatly appreciated, especially from someone who has hands-on experience.[View Answers]

Psych undergrad degree: BA or BS and Why?0christopher2012-11-06 07:05:44
The college I'm attending allows psychology majors to choose whether they wish to receive a BA or BS in psychology at graduation. Are there particular advantages to one or the other? I'm currently a sophomore and I'm not entirely sure what I want to do after graduating, but I'll probably end up applying to graduate programs in either cognitive or industrial &organizational psychology. NOT counseling psychology.[View Answers]
About business consulting jobs..MA in Industial and Organizational Psychology or MBA degree?0I R Good 2012-11-06 06:45:08
My major is Economics. After my graduation from University, I worked as an accountant in a multinational company about 2 years. But did not work out for me, I was very busy which was fine for me but it was very routine. Then I went to US and had Management and Marketing diplomas. I really like marketing. After I went back to my home country, I started to work again for a multinational company as PR Specialist. This job was exciting actually but it turned out such a piece of cake for me and there was and is no challenge. And I've been thinking to have a Master's degree and finally had a chance to start a program. Now I am hover around to concentrate in Marketing or Management Consulting. Marketing is interesting though there is not much opportunity in the city I live, but there are many small businesses need consulting. I also interested in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. SO I need your opinions, really dont know which to choose and concentrate on. I do not want any more career change in my life and want to stick one thing. Besides I want to ask which one is preferable for management consulting I/O psychology or MBA degree? Thank you [View Answers]

Question about graduate school specializations?0Danni2012-11-06 05:39:59
I was wondering if your graduate school concentration or major I guess you might call it necessarily has to match your undergraduate major. Right now, I am a psychology major with a minor in mathematics and I'm planning on going to graduate school, hopefully to become a professor. I would rather go to graduate school for mathematics as opposed to psychology, but I'm not sure if I can since it's only my minor. I have taken many math courses, anywhere from calculus and trigonometry to complex real analysis and applied combinatorics, so I feel that I would be well-prepared for a grad program in math, but Im almost apprehensive even to apply with the degree in psychology I will receive. Just for background information, I've considered going for a double-major in psychology and math, but i don't have the time at this point since I only picked up math during my sophomore year. I will without a doubt be able to finish the minor though. Can I still apply to a grad program in math with my current degree path? Thanks.[View Answers]
Would anyone care to review my personal statement?0toyhier2012-11-06 05:03:22
I want to go to University in September (Anglia Ruskin to be specific, 240 points) and this is my personal statement! I want to do Psychology Bsc (hons). Soooo yeah, this is my first draft, please be as harsh as possible, i want to get it the best it can be! Thank you! x ------ My deep interest in psychological studies sprung from an early age, by reading a range of books, my main influence surprisingly geared towards entertainment. The book in question was “Tricks of the Mind”, authored by Derren Brown. I realise this may seem a bit silly, yet in this book he wrote about the study of the mind, how he took psychology at University and loved it. It also gave me an elemental understanding of basic human behaviour, attachments, rapport and even suggestibility. This whole area seemed like an exciting delve into understanding functions, knowing how we work and what secrets of daily life are revealed through the tangled jungle of the human mind. This has carried on fascinating me through to this day. I believe my life experiences, even at this young age, make me an ideal candidate for a degree, and later on a career in psychology. My previous employment has taught me many skills not only for the course, yet also for life, Discipline, patience and punctuality just to name a few. I started work at the age of 15 in a restaurant and café area at Bewl Water Reservoir, This included working in many roles there, but mostly serving food and handling money at the front of house. This is around the time I started to gain an interest in psychology, I found observing customers behaviour fascinating! I began to read up on human behaviour on the internet in order to see patterns in the customers. My boss here was what you could call… Strict, she would usually manage to fire at least 1 person a fortnight. I managed to stay here for over a year under this management and I consider that a great achievement! My boss eventually got outbid on the lease to the restaurant so I decided to move on. I now work at the supermarket, The Co-operative. I feel my range of employment has taught me many transferable skills to proudly bring into a university lifestyle. working in sociable jobs focused around people, makes me a perfect candidate to study such a people based course, as I have had so much practise dealing with differing situations in differing roles, I very much enjoy getting involved in the schools activities and helping spread a good word. I found myself getting involved in speeches and really enjoyed it, something many have trouble with; I grew to love! I eventually decided to apply to become a prefect at Angley, in order to, not only help the inner school workings, but also the whole reputation around the wider community, which I feel is very important being based in such a rural area of Kent. After my degree, I plan to stay on in full time education and progress to a masters degree, maybe to become a psychology teacher, or simply branch out into a more specific area of expertise, such as an occupational psychologist. The research aspect also looks very appealing, the ability to create world leading data and changing the way human-kind thinks is mindblowing! And with my commitment and passion to everything psychology, I think this is a real-life possibility.[View Answers]
Psychiatric nursing dissertation topics?0Jordan Smith2012-11-06 04:28:50
I'm going into college but only have one chance to choose my major: I'm stuck between getting a PhD in clinical psychology or advanced psychiatric nursing. I'm basing my decision on whether or not I'd be able to handle a dissertation in each. Is nursing exclusive to a nurse-patient relationship, or nurse-whatever relationships? Or is it possible to focus entirely on research of for example, the effect of mental illness on one's behaviour or vice versa? (should that be saved for a psych dissertation?)[View Answers]

Too many areas of study!?0Lima2012-11-06 03:11:08
Hi, I am 15 years old and just graduated from high school early and am going to start attending a community college, and then a 4 year university, but one of my problems is there is so much stuff that I want to study but I don't want to be in college for 20+ years. Here is the list of all the stuff I am interested in learning and possibly getting a degree in. Political Science Social Science Psychology Philosophy History Geography Anthropology Religion Is there any way I can quadruple major any of these (at the university)? Or do I have to get each degree one by one? I know it's alot but I really am interested in all of this stuff, and would like the bonus of having a degree in it (Bachelors or Masters). So would anyone have any solutions? Should I drop any of them or double, triple, or quadruple major? Are any of them useless or very similar to another? I don't care about having a job in the fields, I just want to learn the stuff.[View Answers]
Failed at school but want to go to college?0Elain2012-11-06 02:34:08
I pretty much slept my way through school (since elementary), and just barely graduated H.S. with a 2.5 GPA. That was three years ago. I live with my sister, so since then I've pretty much just gotten by through babysitting jobs and commissioning artwork. I literally do nothing else but read (fiction), babysit, paint, and surf the web. Needless to say, my brain has turned to GOO. I have little to no conversational skills, I'm awkward as heck, I'm godawful when it comes to critical thinking and problem solving, and I'm just not very smart. That said, I'm planning to go back to school. I want to do something with my life. Be someone. I'm currently studying my butt off to pass the entrance exams to BMCC (community college). The plan is to get an AS in Human Services (while doing volunteer work to build credentials), transfer to a 4-year school where I can complete a BA degree in Human Services while minoring in either Sociology, Psychology, or Spanish. IF things go well, I'd like to go to Graduate School to get my Master's of Social Work (MSW). The problem? I'm terrified out of my mind. I've never really put any effort into anything like this before, and the potentiality of failing (because I'm really just not very smart or social) is scaring the crud out of me. I think a career in Human Services is something I might really like, but even that has it's downsides. The main one being that a BA in that field is the equivalent to a HS diploma and if I ever want to do have a steady income I'd need to get my MSW. And I don't even know if I'll be able to handle community college. I've always hated school, and that's the main reason why I just never did well. I'm having to re-learn math I did in elementary school, I'm that out of practice. I don't even know what kind of answers to expect here. Words of wisdom and advice would be helpful. Tips and suggestions to succeed in college (or in my designated major/career) would be amazing. Heck, I'd even take words of reassurance at this point. I'm pulling my hair out here. Thanks in advance![View Answers]
What degree is best for preparing to go into Neuroscience?0 Ya Love Tang screen name -2012-11-06 02:01:52
I an currently enrolled at a community college. I was suggested by someone to get my A.S. degree, since I want to transfer to a 4 year college and study Neuroscience.

If I got my A.A. would I be able to transfer into the Neuroscience program at a 4-year school?[View Answers]

What courses do I need to become a Nurse Practitioner?0opg2012-11-06 01:24:53
I'm currently pre-med student majoring in Psychology but am considering being a Nurse Practitioner instead. I know that you need a BS in nursing to more forward to become an NP but what I'm wondering is if there are accelerated programs if you already have a Bachelor's Degree. (in my case, a BS in Psychology) and I would have already taken my MCAT so would that be looked at as an alternative to the GRE??[View Answers]
What should I pair with a bachelor degree in Psychology?0Toya2012-11-06 00:32:20
I need to settle on another degree to pair with psychology. I don't know if I want to do biology because I dread taking organic chemistry and I don't want to work in a lab on a day-to-day basis. I was thinking information technology specializing in programming but I don't know if I like to type thousands of line of codes. I guess I need this other degree to be the backup plan in case psychology do not get me a job. Any ideas? ps. I am planning on going to graduate school either way.[View Answers]
Does where you go to get your undergraduate degree affect your value in the job market?0Korrina2012-11-06 00:27:42
i live in jacksonville, florida, and i'm going to a community college right now. i'm going to be graduating soon and transferring to a university. i plan to apply at ucf, fsu, usf, and maybe uf. i'm not ruling out unf here in jacksonville just yet. i am a psychology major. i want my masters or higher. after i get my bachelor's, i'll work to help me get through grad school if what is saved and set away for college by my parents is not enough. ucf and usf are large schools with excellent ratings that i would love to go to. unf is a small school with relatively bad ratings and reviews, but it's here at home, and i do like it here. uf and fsu are thought of as the more prestigious schools in florida. just because of the name, will it be an advantage after i receive my bachelors? will getting my bachelors at any of the said colleges be different from getting it at another? i was told that your post-grad degrees and where you get them from is where it really matters, is that true?[View Answers]

Further study and other commitments?0Christy2012-11-05 22:37:57
I’m a second year Psychology student. I am studying hard and aiming for a 2:1! I have been to a careers fair and I'm not particularly interested in any of the work available for me after my degree. They seem to be less linked to Psychology and as I really enjoy the subject I am considering taking a masters in the subject in order for me to get on to a PhD course to become a professional. I know I will have no problem with going where I want to be. Although it's going to take a lot of effort! But I am worried that I will be missing out on getting married and having children. I really want to have children quite young. Around 26-27 age and I am worried I will have to decide between my career and having children/family life. Do people these days have to choose or can both be realistically done the same time!?[View Answers]
