    Hello,

    The scope of Psychology today is gearing up, thanks to the general awareness on the need of subject.

    For your information, the nature of work of a psychologist is influenced most by the areas of specialization in the subject. You can work in a number of different settings, including universities and colleges, primary and secondary schools, government agencies, private industry, hospitals, clinics, and private practices and consider employment opportunities in social welfare organizations, research establishments, rehabilitation centers, prisons, child/ youth guidance centers, advertising industry and in a variety of other set-ups.

    Now with regard to Clinical Psychology, is one of the most known and sought specialization in the field of Psychology. work in counseling centers, independent or group practices, hospitals, community health centers or clinics. They help mentally and emotionally disturbed clients adjust to life and may help medical and surgical patients deal with illnesses or injuries. Areas of specialization within clinical psychology include health psychology, neuropsychology, and geropsychology.

    A piece of advise, to pursue the career of a psychologist, one should have a genuine desire to help other human beings as the topmost priority.

    Think well and do get back in case of further queries.

    Take care!

    There is no age limit if you wish to study!!! I have seen a 78yr old man joining a computer institute knowledge!! Still if u wish to do distance education in india, i would suggest to join ignou as the degrees are accepted all around India and Abroad!! Since psychology is a subject which includes practicals, you will have to go to their study centers for the compulsory practicals!!! Also theie are other Distance education universities like sikkim manipal, Annamalai etc!!

    clinical psychology is a name of a job itself. When u do MA or MSC in psychology, u become a clinical psychologist.
    As we all know there isn't enough scope of psychologist in India or Pakistan(im from Pakistan) but there is still hope, and i believe numbers are growing. Disturbed people are all over, its just a matter of finding help, and believeing in someone can help you.
    Im a psychologist in Lahore, I dont have a lot of patients but i know its coming, its growing.
    so apply in hospitals, clinics, schools, etc, and have patience, see what happens.

    i got a chance to talk to a few psychologists of my state.. according to them, its better not to take clinical psychology because, most of the psychology students ends up in that field. there are a lot of other areas where you cam pursue a career like forensic, organisational, sports etc.. those who are interested in management can take up HRDM courses as well…

    Mounika after B.A 3 yrs of graduation you can do M.A in psychology like criminal psychology, organisational psychology, clinical psychology, psychology counselling, child psychology, learning disability psychology. This is after your B.A but undergraduate course you can do as counselling. If your in science stream you can opt for forensic psychology that is a four year degree course. All the best. And please so not listen to people , if psychology interests you… just do it. Ah you can also do an abnormal psychology course. Psychology has a wide scope.
