Clinical Psychologist Jobs in California

Evaluate, identify, and treat mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. Clinical psychologists help individuals who have difficulty interacting with the world around them by suggesting coping strategies and guiding them to define goals. They frequently collaborate with other mental health professionals to develop treatment plans. In some states, they may also prescribe medications. They rely on strong organizational skills to monitor and track progress.

Clinical psychologists must be highly versatile in their methods. While some specialize in a particular age group, such as juvenile or elderly patients, many work more with a diverse population. They must determine the appropriate assessments and therapies for each client, employing patient interviews, diagnostic tests, behavior modification programs, and individual/family/group psychotherapy as necessary.
