Why are clinical psychologists so good at predicting people’s future job prospects?
As part of a research project into the value of clinical psychology, a group of academic psychologists have come up with a way of predicting people would go into research careers in the future.
The study has found that, for the most part, people tend to stick to their chosen field if they are in it for the long-term.
Psychologists have been studying the career paths of a number of different professions and have found that those in the clinical and clinical-research sectors are more likely to stay in their chosen fields.
The research has been published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
Professor Mark Bevan from the University of Sydney said clinical psychologists, while not the only ones who are looking at the career possibilities, were well-equipped to predict the future job paths of future professionals.
“I think it’s a really exciting finding that this research group has been able to demonstrate in the context of a wide range of careers,” he said.
He said it was the first time that psychologists had come up to the question, “What would you like to do in the career of a clinical psychologist?” and come up the answer.
Dr Bevan said the results were very encouraging and they had a lot of hope for the future of the profession.
The clinical psychology profession had been growing over the last decade, with more and more people being exposed to clinical research.
Since the 1970s, researchers have been able a huge amount of data from clinical psychology on people’s life histories, social relationships and personality traits.
In the 1980s and 1990s, there was a lot more emphasis on using clinical psychology as a tool to predict future employment opportunities, such as jobs in health, business, education and healthcare.
But, in recent years, the profession has been losing ground.
According to the Bureau of Statistics, the number of people working in clinical psychology has fallen by over half since 2000.
A number of factors were behind the decline, including changes in society, economic conditions and the decline in funding for clinical psychology.
As a result, the research group found that it would be quite difficult for the profession to keep up with the pace of changes in the job market.
This was because the profession was still relatively new, with the number only starting to grow in the 1980, 1990 and 2000s.
However, as a result of the decline and the rise of clinical psychologists in the last 10 years, it is looking increasingly unlikely that the profession will continue to grow at the same rate.
Instead, the future is looking bright for clinical psychologists.
What’s more, the researchers believe the work will allow researchers to use clinical psychology to improve their research designs.
And it may also lead to more jobs in the field, given the increase in demand.
It is also a sign of how well the field is progressing, said Dr Bevan.
Despite the recent downturn in the profession, the field has continued to grow.
About 3.5 million clinical psychologists are currently employed across Australia, according to the Australian Clinical Psychology Association.
