Collaborative Treatment of Medical Disorders: The Management of Diabetes
Most psychologists in private practice have a clientele as varied as all other professionals in our field, limited only by local demographics and legal strictures. Either by personal interest, history, or by accidental training placement, specializations develop that fit us professionally. Some psychologists go so far as to limit the scope of their practice to a particular population and/or treatment modality. Originally, this was the standard path as many completed postdoctoral courses of study in psychoanalysis, family therapy, cognitive–behavioral methods, neuropsychological or forensic assessment, and myriad others, while some specialize in various clinical syndromes. The medical psychologist, who specializes in support of healing medical conditions, is a very special case – a combination of a health psychologist and a psychopharmacologist.
