The field of abnormal psychology is one that can be alternately fascinating and heartbreaking. However, most psychologists agree that it is a deeply rewarding career, both personally and financially. In addition to extensive education and on-the-job training, successful psychologists possess the following traits:

  • Professional communication skills
  • Keen observational skills
  • Extraordinary patience
  • Research and analytical skills
  • Genuine interest in people
  • Honest and trustworthy

Clinical Psychology Degree Options and Curriculum

If you want to work as a psychologist, one of the most important decisions you face is where to go to school.

You will need a doctorate degree to qualify for the majority of counseling psychology positions.

You also have the option of choosing among many specialties in psychology, such as adolescent mental health.

Look for a school that offers progressively challenging courses and the opportunity for you to complete as much psychology field work as possible.

License Requirements

You must meet all educational, experience and exam requirements in order to obtain a License to Practice Psychology in Georgia. All applicants for the license must have earned a doctorate degree in psychology from an accredited college.

The next step is to complete 1,500 hours of post-doctorate supervised work experience (SWE) related to your academic program specialty area. You are required to complete a contract with your supervisor and submit it to the state psychology board.

Your 1,500 hours must be completed no less than 11 months and not more than 24 months after the date you signed the contract.

The next step is to pass two written exams, which are the National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Examination (NCMHCE) and the Georgia Jurisprudence Exam. Each require a score of 70 percent or better to pass.

You also need to pass an oral exam. Your psychology license is good for two years and must be renewed by December 31 of even years.

Career Outlook for Graduates in Georgia

According to a state-by-state industry report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) in May 2012, there are 2,620 people in Georgia who make their living as a clinical, school or counseling psychologist.

  • People in this job category earn a median annual income of $63,590. This is nearly $10,000 less than the national average of $72,220.
  • However, clinical, school and counseling psychologists who earn at or above the national average often live in cities where the cost of living is significantly higher than Georgia.
  • Nationwide, the salary range for this category of psychologists ranges from $38,450 for the bottom 10 percent and $109,340 for the top 10 percent.

Psychologists who do not work in the above capacity are listed by the BLS as all other psychologists. The average annual pay for this classification in 2012 was $84,220 nationwide and $83,510 in Georgia.

The nationwide salary range for all other psychologists is $42,240 to $116,240. There are only 250 people employed in this job classification in Georgia.

The BLS predicts double-digit growth for all psychologists through at least 2020.

School and industrial psychologists are expected to be in the highest demand. School psychologists usually need additional credentials, such as endorsement by the National Association of School Psychologists.

The demand for industrial psychologists is high because it is a new career and not a lot of people have had the opportunity to gain the right skill set until now.
