While I am finishing my degrees I plan on taking the exam and becoming a BCaBA (Board Certified assistant Behavioral Analyst). While working as a Behavioral analyst assistant, I will need to be supervised by a BCBA (Board Certified Behavioral Analyst). Once I earn so many hours supervised I can then take the exam to become a BCBA. After I graduate with my doctorate I plan on taking the board exam and becoming a licensed Clinical and forensic Psychologist. I live in West Virginia, the APA licensing requirements is that I as a graduate student have 500 hours of supervised direct client contact by the end of my doctorate program. I did my research on different organizations that govern my specialized field which is clinical psychology with a specialization in forensic psychology. What I found was that there are a great deal of organizations that govern clinical psychology because of the wide range of disorders that clinical psychologists can treat. Some to mention include: schools, hospitals, nursing homes, businesses, jails, and psychiatric hospitals. The field in which I currently work there is a limited amount of individuals that will be helpful to me and my career. The individuals that have been and will be helpful to me and my career are my clients I work with every day. They are all different in the way they handle stressful situations and in their disorders. The book Career Paths in Psychology was a very interesting book and I enjoyed what I read a great deal. As I read the book I really did not learn much about my career; however, I learned a lot of interesting facts about other fields of psychology. The reason I did not learn much about my career path is because when I chose my career as a new college student I did extensive research. The APA Code of Ethics has been a helpful resource and will continue to be.
