Morning, posted this in another thread then thought that maybe it would be better to post this in it's own thread. If this is wrong, many apologies. I have a paper coming up where I have to interview someone in my future field, however this is one of those times where school and work conflicts heavily. Anyways, my future field (fingers crossed) is a clinical pediatric neuropsychologist however I do want to work on every level as I work towards my specialization. So if any clinical psychologist, neuropsychologists, clinical neuropsychologists, or pediatric neuropsychologists would like please answer the questions below or email me at gmail bcfelker89 A million thanks.
