Overview Career Paths in Psychology is the ideal guide for anyone contemplating a career in psychology: students, recent graduates, career-changers, or psychologists seeking new challenges. In this book, psychologists who have achieved great success in a variety of areas discuss their work: what got them into it, what they like and don't like about it, and what a typical work week is like in their chosen specialty. These psychologists offer advice, information, and the inspiration of their own career paths. They speak frankly about salaries and job opportunities and about what it takes to make it in their field.

Now, the career possibilities for psychologists are more varied and exciting than ever. As Career Paths in Psychology shows, the range of work available to psychologists goes far beyond the traditional roles of laboratory researcher or individual therapist. Among the careers discussed in these pages are the following: School psychology, Consulting psychology, Industrial/organizational psychology, Counseling psychology, Clinical psychology in hospitals, Military psychology, Public service, Psychology in academic careers, Health psychology, Psychology in managed care. The first edition of Career Paths in Psychology, released in 1997, has become an invaluable resource for students and instructors alike. This new, second edition-updated to reflect changes since that time and to highlight current trends in the field-contains five additional chapters on careers in medical schools, administration, child psychology, neuropsychology, and the government.
