“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.”
Carl Gustav Jung
How does the APA define "psychologist?"
"APA's policy on the use of the title 'psychologist' is contained in the General Guidelines for Providers of Psychological Services, which define the term 'Professional Psychologist' as follows: 'Psychologists have a doctoral degree in psychology from an organized, sequential program in a regionally accredited university or professional school.' APA is not responsible for the specific title or wording of any particular position opening, but it is general pattern to refer to master's-level positions as counselors, specialists, clinicians and so forth (rather than as 'psychologists'). In addition, it is general practice to refer to APA accredited programs as 'APA-accredited' rather than 'APA approved'. The position as described must be in conformity with the statute regulating the use of the title psychologist and the practice of psychology in the state in which the job is available."
"Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves."
"In the jungle of human existence, there in no feeling of being alive without a sense of identity."
