    #52 – Early Career Psychologist Series, Chapter 5 – Emily Green

    #52 – Early Career Psychologist Series, Chapter 5 – Emily Green

    This episode is the fifth and final chapter of the early career psychologist series, showcasing early career psychologists who are either completing their training, or in their early years of working.
    These psychologists have come from all different backgrounds and have vastly different life experiences. I love how in this small sample of seven, you get a sense of the diversity of individuals that come to this profession. Each interviewee reminded me of the sheer determination and hard work it takes to become a psychologist, something we should pat ourselves on the back for achieving regularly!
    In this episode I chatted to Emily Green, a 27 year old from Brooklyn, New York.  Emily graduated with her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in May 2016 from Yeshiva University in the Bronx, NY.
    In the US, to obtain a license to practice, you are required to pass the EPPP (Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology) after you've received your degree.  Emily completed hers in April 2017.  She is currently completing her doctoral training (a years worth of supervised clinical hours) at a community mental health centre.  This role involves working with children, adults and families from diverse cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic communities.  She described her clients as representing the "whole gamut of pathology" from depression and anxiety, to substance abuse disorders, and psychotic-spectrum disorders.
    It was fabulous to chat to an early career psychologist from overseas!
