In doing so, a comprehensive and realistic view of the field of clinical psychology will be presented. Throughout the course of this book, I discuss the field of clinical psychology as understood and practiced in the United States. However, clinical psychology is recognized and practiced in many other countries. The American Psychological Association (APA), the Canadian Psychological Association, and the British Psychological Society for example, have more similarities than differences and often host joint meetings and other professional activities.

Other Locations Clinical psychologists are also employed in a variety of other settings such as police departments, prisons, juvenile hall and detention centers, rehabilitation centers for disabled children and/or adults, substance abuse and/or mental illness halfway houses, battered women’s shelters, schools, and many other work environments. These psychologists provide a wide range of professional services such as psychological assessment, consultation, and counseling. Subspecialties Most clinical psychologists are trained in the research, assessment, and treatment of a variety of clinical issues pertaining to a diverse set of client populations.
