What questions do you have about the requirements for your peers’ profession?What resources or individuals are you aware of that could help them clarify their career goals or requirements for their field?While I am finishing my degrees I plan on taking the exam and becoming a BCaBA (Board Certified assistant Behavioral Analyst). While working as a Behavioral analyst assistant, I will need to be supervised by a BCBA (Board Certified Behavioral Analyst). Once I earn so many hours supervised I can then take the exam to become a BCBA. After I graduate with my doctorate I plan on taking the board exam and becoming a licensed Clinical and forensic Psychologist. I live in West Virginia, the APA licensing requirements is that I as a graduate student have 500 hours of supervised direct client contact by the end of my doctorate program. I did my research on different organizations that govern my specialized field which is clinical psychology with a specialization in forensic psychology. What I found was that there are a great deal of organizations that govern clinical psychology because of the wide range of disorders that clinical psychologists can treat. Some to mention include: schools, hospitals, nursing homes, businesses, jails, and psychiatric hospitals. The field in which I currently work there is a limited amount of individuals that will be helpful to me and my career. The individuals that have been and will be helpful to me and my career are my clients I work with every day. They are all different in the way they handle stressful situations and in their disorders. The book Career Paths in Psychology was a very interesting book and I enjoyed what I read a great deal. As I read the book I really did not learn much about my career; however, I learned a lot of interesting facts about other fields of psychology. The reason I did not learn much about my career path is because when I chose my career as a new college student I did extensive research. The APA Code of Ethics has been a helpful resource and will continue to be. As of right now I do not have any questions in regards to career. I have spent a lot of time doing research on my career choice, the requirements, licensing procedures, the pros/cons of the job, and the Ethical codes. The information that I could not find out by doing research in my opinion is only stuff that can be learned by hands on experience.
