SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I know this question has been posed and answered before. But I wanted to see if perhaps there are ways to be resourceful and pull in enough money to be comfortable given realities of psychology reimbursement. Right now, I am interested in being a counseling/clinical or school psychologist. My mom is a neuropsychologist that tells me the field of psychology is changing. She feels psychologists with a phd graduate degree put in a lot of time and don't get proportional reimbursement. I don't want or need to make the most money in my career. But I want enough to be comfortable, to make at least 65k. This is especially true given that I already have a master's in public health where I could, if I tried, surpass the amount of money that I would make for awhile in psychology. Given that private practice is fading out, how and where would it be possible to make money as a psychologist? Is there enough of a need for consulting in certain areas? Also, this is part of a larger conversation, but I had some questions as to the changing role of psychology for disorders that are partially biological, partially behavioral. My mom feels psychology will take a back seat in certain disorders because the emphasis will be on prevention and this will examine the biological underpinnings or biological mechanisms. More money will go to this biological research and intervention. If this is the case with even aggression or maladaptive behavior in youth, what role will social/behavioral interventions play?
