The study of the mind and human behavior, psychology is our attempt to understand people and their motivations so that we can help them overcome problems and lead happier, more satisfying lives. There are many sub-fields to choose from, including clinical, forensic, and school psychology, and you’ll decide which one is best for you during your studies.
Counselors and therapists have many specialties to choose from. Marriage and family therapy, substance abuse counseling, and mental health counseling are three of the most popular fields. But whatever field you choose, respect, compassion and a real desire to help are the most important characteristics you can have if you want to succeed.
