Psychology By: Hannah Wilson

"Practicing psychologists have the professional training and clinical skills to help people learn to cope more effectively with life issues and mental health problems."

Psychology is the study and science of the mind and human behavior. Psychologists conduct research, diagnose and treat patients; they study normal and abnormal functioning, and treat people with mental and emotional problems.

"Practicing psychologists help a wide variety of people and can treat many kinds of problems. Some people may talk to a psychologist because they have felt depressed, angry or anxious for a long time. Or, they want help for a chronic condition that is interfering with their lives or physical health."

After High School I plan on going to Mineral Area College for two years, and then Southeast Missouri State University for two more years & I'll be getting a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. I might go on to get a Master's degree.

"Psychologists with doctoral degrees (either a PhD, PsyD or EdD) receive one of the highest levels of education of all health care professionals, spending an average of seven years in education and training after they receive their undergraduate degrees."

While I'm going to MAC I'll rent an apartment and I'll have a job while in college to pay for it. When I go to SEMO I'll move closer to that college. After college I want to get a job as some kind of therapist or a special education teacher.

"Special education teachers work with students who have a wide range of learning, mental, emotional, and physical disabilities. They adapt general education lessons and teach various subjects, such as reading, writing, and math, to students with mild and moderate disabilities. They also teach basic skills, such as literacy and communication techniques, to students with severe disabilities."
