Abstract

In Australia, Psychology is a very popular profession and area of study. For example, figures from the Board of Psychology released in June 2014 showed that there are over 30 000 registered psychologists in Australia and this figure continues to increase year on year. In addition to obtaining registration, many psychologists also undertake several years of further postgraduate training to obtain practice endorsement in specialist areas of practice. Usually this entails undertaking a Masters or Doctoral degree over an additional two or three years after having completed an Honours degree. The most popular of the areas of specialist endorsement is Clinical Psychology which now accounts for over 65% of such specializations in Australia.
