3) Clinical Psychology

Clinical psychologists assess and treat people's mental and emotional disorders. Such problems may range from the normal psychological crises related to life-cycle adjustment to extreme conditions such as schizophrenia, personality disorders, or depression. Many clinical psychologists also conduct research or function as consultants, supervisors, or administrators. Clinical psychologists work in both academic institutions and health care settings such as clinics, hospitals, and community mental health centers, as well as in private practice. Many focus their interests on special populations (e.g., children, the elderly) or specific problem areas (such as phobias, substance abuse, or depression). (APA, 2002, p. 45)

4) Cognitive Psychology

Cognitive psychologists study the behavior of knowing. They are concerned with finding scientific means for studying the mental processes involved in the acquisition and application of knowledge. They also emphasize the study of mental structure and organization. They view the individual as an active, constructive, and planful, rather than passive, recipient of environmental stimulation. (APA, 2002, p. 47)

5) Community Psychology

Community psychology is an applied branch of psychology concerned with person-environment interactions and the ways society impacts upon individual and community functioning. Community Psychology is about understanding people within their social worlds and using this understanding to improve people's well-being. Researchers systematically examine the ways individuals interact with other individuals, social groups, clubs, churches, schools, families, neighborhoods, and the larger culture and environment.

6) Counseling Psychology

Counseling psychology as a psychological specialty facilitates personal and interpersonal functioning across the life span with a focus on emotional, social, vocational, educational, health-related, developmental, and organizational concerns. Through the integration of theory, research, and practice, and with a sensitivity to multicultural issues, this specialty encompasses a broad range of practices that help people improve their well-being, alleviate distress and maladjustment, resolve crises, and increase their ability to live more highly functioning lives. Counseling psychology is unique in its attention both to normal developmental issues and to problems associated with physical, emotional, and mental disorders. (from APA Division 17)

8) Developmental Psychology

Developmental psychologists study human development across the life span, from newborns to the aged. They are interested in the description, measurement, and explanation of age-related changes in behavior. Many doctoral-level developmental psychologists are employed in academic settings: teaching and doing research. They often consult on programs in day-care centers, preschools, and hospitals for children. They also evaluate intervention programs designed by private, state, or federal agencies.

9) Educational Psychology

Educational psychologists study how people learn, and they design the methods and materials used to educate people of all ages. Many work in universities, in both psychology departments and schools of education. Their research focuses on the theory and development of psychological tests, reading, creativity, and retardation, as well as on such concepts as maturation, group behavior, curriculum development, and intellectual growth and development. (APA, 2002,, p. 48)

11) Experimental Psychology

"Experimental psychologist" is a general title applied to a diverse group of psychologists who conduct research and often teach about a variety of basic behavioral processes. These processes include learning; sensation; perception; human performance; motivation; memory; language, thinking, and communication; and the physiological processes underlying behaviors such as eating, reading, and problem solving. They also study the behavior of animals, often with a view to gaining a better understanding of human behavior, but sometimes also because it is intrinsically interesting. (APA, 2002, p.49)

12) General Psychology

General psycholology is an integration of many different sub-areas and therefore provides a breadth of knowledge. A degree in general psychology will not, however, provide one with the necessary training in clinical or counseling psychology. These programs tend to focus on theory and research, often with an applied focus.

13) Health Psychology

Health psychologists are researchers and practitioners concerned with psychology's contribution to the promotion and maintenance of good health and the prevention and the treatment of illness. As applied psychologists or clinicians, they may, for example, design and conduct programs to help individuals stop smoking, lose weight, manage stress, prevent cavities, or stay physically fit. As researchers, they seek to identify conditions and practices that are associated with health and illness. In public service roles, they study and work to improve the government's policies and systems for health care. Employment settings for this specialty area can be found in medical centers, industry, hospitals, health maintenance organizations, rehabilitation centers, public health agencies, and private practice. (APA, 2002, p. 49)
