I personally wanted a PhD degree but it was not available
to me.

Thank You!

I have had a very disappointing experience. I am going to complete
my educational goal which is clinical psychology. I applied at
Argosy University and was given the condescending pity interview.
I saw it after four minutes with these two gentlemen. I hope friends ask me about Argosy University so I can persuade them
to save their time and dignity. What losers!

There is a difference between Phd clinical psychologists and PsyDs. The PhD requires more familiarity with Theory and the fundamentals of research in terms of how to conduct it interpret it. These are skills that are central for a clinician's capacity for reading and interpreting the most up-to-date and professional information on best practices and Innovations in the field. My experience PhD's have a more informed and in-depth perspective on their patients problems and a broader set of skills for approaching a person's clinical issues in treatment. Also, you might experience, there are PsyD psychologist with Knowledge about treating patients with psychopharmacology. However, they are extremely rare. This may change as APA begins to require accredited programs to include information on pharmacological treatment. This is in the works. The PsyDs I have supervised are typically very disinterested in learning about psychopharmacology. Of course the training is to blame but A lack of familiarity with medication excludes an extremely important part of evidence-based treatment. In the end a person will benefit most from treatment with a professional Who provides a place they feel is safe, where they are heard and feel comfortable.
