Well the thing is that being a forensic psychologist is being a T also. You test individuals and interview criminals to see if they are sane or insane, or whether they can ever live outside the prison without committing murders or should they remain in a mental institution.
They provide therapy for those who usually are the worst off, like in prison and mental institutions.
They also help with custody hearings, and help make mental heath laws. They also can do criminal profiling to help in investigations into murders or other crime. I still want to be a T, but I love the law aspect of it too. There is a really cool program in Chicago I am looking into, it is a Psyd. program of forensic psych.
I was always told in high school by teachers that they saw me as being a lawyer in the future,but I love psych so much.
I am finding by researching many grad programs for being a psychologist that you don't have to major in psych to be admitted. As long as I have the required classes, they don't care. I have most of them already except statistics.
I am suppose to call this lady who runs the child advocacy to see if their is an internship this summer I could get into. There is another one where you stand up for the child in court so they are heard. I am just happy to see my future ahead of me. It may take me longer because I am a full time mom, but I am going to do it eventually.
