What does this mean? Basically if anyone has any recommendations or information where to go for further studies in Psychology i.e. specialisation in a subfield of Psychology, do post it here. Also, if got questions, do ask!

I start first by asking: Where should I go for a non-research based Masters in Clinical Psychology? I was thinking of going to Auckland University, but that's mainly because I've always wanted to go to New Zealand My mother graduated from there with a degree in Counseling Psychology too, emak borek anak rintik

I'm not sure how good it is, and how recognized the degree is. Maybe it's not exactly the best place. Has anyone ever heard of where is a good place, or any info on the quality of a masters from Auckland U?

I've heard that stanford is good for psychology. Or is that plain obvious haha... Still why don't you consider going there straight for a progressive pHD?

Probably because I want to go New Zealand But that's something I should consider as well. Anyway, Stanford was my choice for a Phd, so I would end up there any way. If I can actually get a cmpany to sponsor me there, I'd probably go for that progressive Phd thing

By the way, I'm a STPM 2007 student, applying for pubic uni entrance 08/09 soon. I'm interested to know more abt the career and academic pathway to become a clinical psychologist.

As I am a science stream student, the only public uni I can pick later for psychology course is UKM(uni Kebangsaan Malaysia). UMS do offer psychology course but they only open for art stream students.

I hv heard that in order to become a clinical psychologist, one can either do a degree in psychology or counselling course first, then only master in clinical psychology. and both pathways can lead to the path of becoming a clinical psychologist.

can someone explain the difference btwn these two pathways?or which is a better pathway?

thx in advanced.=)

Counseling deals with more of the cases involving normal people. Stress, problems with bf/gf and so on. And it's more limited to giving support and advise to the affected.

Psychiatrist, on the other hand, deals with the more serious cases which required medicine or drugs to control the patients' behaviour...

Hope that's clear enough to differenciate between the two ;)

If you're unsure at this point which you want to do, I suggest Clinical as it is easier to go from Clinical to Counselling than from Counselling to Clinical (i.e., Clinical is more 'able-ing'). UKM is good, HELP is good too There are dedicated psychologists/lecturers at both institutes.

I'm not sure about the qualifications in Malaysia as there is not overarching regulating registration board, but minimum qualifications in other countries are:
Australia - Master of Clinical Psychology
UK & US - PhD or Doctorate

As for the differences btwn the different areas:
Counselling - normal everyday problems but with specific techniques/problem-solving skills to deal with them
Clinical - dealing with people who are diagnosed with mental illnesses e.g. depression, eating disorders, autism, ADHD etc
Psychiatry - mostly medicine and pharmacology to 'co-treat' these disorders as there are biological influences

Hope this helps. Good luck!
