This book, A Career in Clinical Psychology: From Training to Employment, is a companion volume to Theories and Methods for Practice of Clinical Psychology by Robertson and Woody. When combined, the two-volume set provides a comprehensive overview of clinical psychology, including history, training, employment opportunities, roles and functions, as well as concepts of normality and psychopathology and theories and strategies of psychological assessment, psychotherapy, and behavioral change. Contemporary "clinical psychology" is wide ranging and its concepts applicable to a number of fields. The concepts of this book are directed particularly to students and practitioners in the specialties of clinical, counseling, and school psychology, but professionals in mental health counseling, marriage and family therapy, pastoral counseling, rehabilitation counseling, social work, psychiatric nursing, and medicine will also benefit from a careful reading of the text.
