Clinical Psychologists

A clinical psychologist is a specialist psychologist with a minimum of six years university training, including approved postgraduate clinical studies and placements in psychiatric settings. Further to this, in order to become a full member of the  Australian Psychological Society (APS) College of Clinical Psychologists, two years of further approved specialist supervision in the clinical field is required.

Clinical psychologists are specialists in the  assessment, diagnosis and treatment of psychological problems and mental illness. They are located in private practice, hospitals, universities, general medical practices, community health centres and mental health services. Clinical psychologists work with infants, children, adolescents, adults and older adults. They are also involved in designing and  implementing a wide range of prevention and mental health promotion programs.

The APS College of Clinical Psychologists maintains the highest standards for clinical  psychology practice in Australia. These  standards are also consistent with international standards for clinical practice.
