Psychology Education In Ohio

If you want to become a licensed practicing psychologist in the Buckeye State that is Ohio, you will be happy to hear that the industry is thriving and growing in line with national trends. According to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, projected growth is 10.9% between 2010 and 2020. As a result, more positions are being made available with more competitive rates of pay.

Having a mental illness can significantly reduce a person's quality of life. Additionally, it is the main reason for disability in our country. For those with a mental illness, going to see a psychologist is often the last hope for help. This means that psychologists have a tremendous responsibility towards their patients. As a result, the state of Ohio has put a number of stringent requirements in place in order to make sure that professionals are able to actually carry these responsibilities. The requirements focus on education, experience and examination.

Educational Requirements to Become a Licensed Psychologist in Ohio

If you do want to pursue a career in psychology, you must earn a doctorate degree from an institution accredited by the American Psychological Association or another institution recognized by the state. Before you can complete a doctorate degree, however, you will need to finish a four year bachelor's degree, followed by a two year master's. You then have to choose between a Ph.D. and a Psy.D., which will take you between three and seven years to complete. It is recommended that you choose a program that includes a residency or internship, as this can help towards your supervised professional experience.

Choosing between the Ph.D. and Psy.D. is a very important decision and it is recommended that you speak to a career adviser to help you in that decision. The Ph.D. requires an original research thesis, which is why it takes longer to finish. Your choice will influence your future career, as it will greatly determine the type of work in psychology you will be able to do.

The only exemption to the doctorate rule is for school psychologists. They only need to be educated to the master's degree level. Additionally, they must have a specialization in school psychology.

Supervised Professional Experience for Psychologists in Ohio

The Ohio State Board of Psychology requires that prospective psychologists also complete supervised professional experience of no less than two years. No more than one of these years can be completed during doctoral education, for instance through a residency or internship. The other year must be completed post-doctoral and must be directed by a licensed and approved psychologist.

Ohio Psychologist Licensure Examinations

Once you have completed your education and supervised experience, you will need to pass the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP), which is administered by the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB). This test consists of 225 multiple choice questions and you must answer at least 70% correctly in order to obtained a passing rate. The examination is nationally recognized, as it covers the eight core areas of psychology:

• Biological Bases of Behavior
• Cognitive-Affective Bases of Behavior
• Social and Cultural Bases of Behavior
• Growth and Lifespan Development
• Assessment and Diagnosis
• Treatment, Intervention, Prevention and Supervision
• Research Methods and Statistics
• Ethical, Legal and Professional Issues

The current cost of the EPPP is $600, although this can change.

The Career of a Psychologist in Ohio

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), there were some 3,550 psychologists employed in Ohio as of May 2014. They have been divided into three specific categories. As such, the BLS has reported that:

• Clinical, counseling and school psychologists earned an average of $72,970 per year, an increase of 1.6% since the last count. The field had grown by 4.3%.
• Industrial organization psychologists earned an average of $93,580 per year, an increase of 6.2%. The field had grown by 22.4%. This was well above average, but that was because it was a reasonably new and emerging field of psychology that is current peaking.
• All other psychologists earned an average of $88,110 per year, an increase of 1.2%. The field had grown by 1.1%.

An average salary means that half of all psychologists earn less than that amount, and the other half earn more. There are a number of factors that play a big part in salary variations, including exact employer and years of experience. It is also here that you will notice the biggest difference between the Psy.D. and the Ph.D.. With a Psy.D., you will work in direct clinical services, offering treatment to patients. Although you can do the same with a Ph.D., it is more likely that you will get to work in research or as a lecturer.
