Clinical Psychologists assess and treat mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders.

Some clinical psychologists treat specific problems exclusively, such as phobias or clinical depression.
School Psychologists work directly with public and private schools from elementary to postgraduate levels of education. They assess and counsel students, consult with parents and school staff, provide vocational and career plans, and conduct behavioral interventions when appropriate, especially in the field of Special Education, among others.
