Provide the name and work environment of the two professionals you interviewed.
Ask the following questions of each of your interviewees and provide your responses in a Question and Answer (Q and A) format, i.e., write the question you asked and then the interviewees response to it:
In what setting do you practice? How long have you been practicing?
What are your specialties or areas of clinical focus?
What are the most common disorders you treat?
Do you have any special certifications or training beyond your original graduate coursework?
How do you approach therapy or treatment? Do you use specific modalities, techniques, or interventions?
What ethical and legal issues do you think are the most challenging or common?
Do you have an opinion on where you think the field of psychology is heading?
What do you enjoy most about your work?
What advice would you provide an aspiring psychologist or therapist?
Discuss, in a separate and distinct 350- to 700-word response, the similarities and differences of how these professionals approach treatment in their settings. Submit the Ask and Discuss portions of the assignment in the same Word document.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
