Beyond the Therapist's Couch
What can you do with a career in psychology, besides enter into private practice as a therapist?
According to Dr. David Stephens, dean of the School of Professional Psychology at University of the Rockies, a number of professional settings need psychologists – including many that are often overlooked.
“Expertise in psychology is relevant in a number of career fields, ranging from hospitals and correctional facilities to health and sports venues,” Stephens says. “Understanding the bases and implications of human behavior, as well as the diagnoses and treatment options, has benefits in a wide range of occupations.”
Stephens will outline some of the potential career opportunities for individuals who hold psychology degrees during a free “lunch and learn” event on Thursday, Nov. 8. The free event begins at 11:30 a.m. in the Harvey House Auditorium at University of the Rockies (555 East Pikes Peak Ave.). Lunch will be provided, so an RSVP is required by Nov. 5. Call 719.442.0808 to register or for more information.
