After reading the section in Chapter 2 that describe psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, counselor, and human service worker, construct a chart that includes all the following:

  1. Training/preparation needed for each of these positions
  2. Job settings these professionals typically work in
  3. Job responsibilities of each of these professionals
  4. Salary of these professionals
  5. Future of the profession

Along with the chart, think about the needs of your community – discuss which of these professionals are needed most and why. You will submit your chart and answers to this question to the discussion board. This Occupational Outlook Handbook (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. website might be a helpful resource for you in finding the information you need for your chart.

After reading through your classmates’ posts, respond to at least two of your classmates – were your charts similar or different? Why do you think that is? How about the professional need within each community – is the same or different – why or why not?

Please note, this discussion board requires you to submit your initial post beforeyou can view the posts of your classmates. Any blank posts made in the discussion board before the initial post is made will receive an automatic zero.
