How do I become an assistant psychologist?Watch this thread
It’s known that becoming an assistant psychologist is the best experience you can get so how do I become one? One of my friends said to personally email psychologists so I’ll do that but is there any other way I can?
Thank you so much in advance x
E-mailing Psychologists in the hope of becoming an 'honourary' Assistant Psychologist is not a good strategy. You may just get strung along.
Firstly, it is useless emailing any clinical psychologist. They are far too busy with their own work and patients - they will ignore your email.
I, and a lot of my fellow CPs, do take time to email prospective grads back and contribute to forums like this and do outreach to schools and other meetings. That said the vast majority of people we can't really do much with or provide opportunities, as I have written elsewhere on this forum for various reasons.
