Exploring This Job

You can easily explore this job by reading as much as you can about the field and the work. To learn about different types of psychotherapies, you may want to read Essential Psychotherapies: Theory and Practice, edited by Stanley B. Messer and Nadine J. Kaslow (The Guilford Press, 2019). You can also talk with your school counselor or psychology teacher about helping you arrange an information interview with a local psychiatrist. If this is not possible, try to get an information interview with any physician, such as your family doctor, to ask about the medical school experience.
