collaborative care models are effective in lowering health disparities among patients and work better than traditional care models in treating depression, schizophrenia, anxiety and, bipolar disorder. My long-term objectives in pursuing an advanced study of psychology entail the numerous areas of research application. Earning a PhD in psychology will be an ideal vehicle to fulfill my dreams of finding employment as a professor in a university setting, consultation, research, consultation, and private practice (employment in Psychiatric Hospitals). I intend to use the expertise and knowledge acquired from the college to further the study areas of emotionally disturbed teenagers with psychiatric diagnosis, mental illness and socioeconomic status, and improvements in mental health. The college has a strong emphasis in research and this will greatly benefit my research interests in that I will be in a position to expand and explore my study areas within the program. I yearn to be one of the many scholars who contribute to the treatment and prevention of mental health.

Surname 5 I feel that the training experiences offered by the college are a perfect match for my future career objectives. In particular, I am interested in developing and examining models of care that adequately address mental health care among incarcerated youth (those with disabilities or classified as emotionally disturbed with psychiatric diagnosis). Working the professionals at the college is the right fit in my intended area of are and I believe that it will be an excellent opportunity for me to improve my research abilities and learn more about working with offenders and persons with mental health problems. Ultimately, I perceive the Psy.D as an end in itself, in addition to a professional stepping-stone. I have a passion for psychology and endeavor to continue my studies at the level the Psy.D program demands. In truth, the doctoral study will be of great value to me since the program will provide me with the practical experiences I am keen on acquiring. Besides, earning a Psy.D will advance my career objectives by adding to my skills, both creative and critical, in working in different psychological settings.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
