Clinical psychologists work to identify emotional, mental, and behavioral problems or disorders that their patients might present with. The first step is using observation, interviews and evaluation to put in place a treatment program in accordance with the patient and his needs. Monitoring the patient’s progress on a regular basis is an essential part of a psychologist’s work as it aims to ensure their needs are met and to adjust therapy goals when necessary.
