  • Wiki - the section that answers FAQs - START BY READING THIS SECTION!
    This section provides answers to all the questions that are commonly asked on the forum, so reading this is the best place to start. It provides a definitive source of information covering many aspects of clinical psychology and the field in general, ranging from what clinical psychologists do, how you might get that first foot on the ladder, how to find relevant employment, what the main jargon means, what the current pay scales are, to explaining IAPT and mental health issues.
