Status of Clinical Psychology in India – (A Retrospective Analysis of Review)
The present retrospective analysis of review study focused on status of clinical psychology in India as compared to European countries. The roles of clinical psychology in present scenario in the field of teaching, training, research, administration and holistic approach of psychological interventions are challenging and very rewarding but the biggest problems facing this sector are its inability to attract the talented personnel. A number of studies show that about 25% of trained professionals are going abroad due to better remunerations, service condition and future prospect. This has to be stop by providing better services conditions, standard salary package and status at par with the medical counterpart. However without proper Government policy, regulating and framing the law, code of conduct and creating a national licensing board similar to the American Psychological Association and British Council for Psychologist status of clinical psychologist cannot be improved.
