Job Description for Psychologist

Psychologists employ their education and knowledge of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) to provide diagnostic interviews, psychological testing, and individual and group psychotherapy. They may work as part of a multidisciplinary team, and consult with other professionals regarding patient care. These other professionals vary depending upon the type of psychologist. For instance, a school psychologist may work with teachers, social workers, counselors, and doctors. Psychologists may also communicate with family members and other care providers. Additionally, they conduct a significant amount of verbal interviews, as well as collaboration with other professionals; report writing is extensive and need to be clear as a medical record, as well as for other care providers when necessary.
