Studying Psychology from Engineering


Recommended Posts

Great day all,

I need help cos I don't know where to start. I am a computer engineer been working in management for more than ten years, however I have always been passionate about psychology and have attended a lot of courses and diplomas since college. Now, I want to take psychology more professionally, I want to study to become a Cognitive Behavior Therapist, just dont know where to start. Do I have to start from an undergraduate study or is there a different path? 

Appreciating your replies

CBT is a typically considered technique or a perspective in therapy that you can become trained and competent in. If you'd like to become a licensed and practicing therapist and use that perspective, there are a few different options. This is a pretty nice article that outlines some routes you can take to achieve your goal, depending on what you're interested in. You do not need an undergraduate degree in psychology to pursue this goal, but you will need to get a higher mental health-related degree (such as a PhD, a MSW, LMHC, or LPCC).
