BECOMING AN EXPERIMENTAL PSYCHOLOGIST- feat. Clarissa Arms-Chavez, Ph.D.
If you want to be a psychologist but are considering a non-clinical route, this is a great episode to listen to. Social Psychology, just like clinical or counseling psychology, is only one of the many niches in the psychology world. This area of psych explores why people do what they do, why we think what we think--biases, perception, preferences, familiarity (to name a few phenomena). To be a social psychologist also probably means doing research, meaning you're also probably an experimental psychologist. My guest today is Clarissa Arms-Chavez, Ph.D, a tenured associate professor and social experimental psychologist at Auburn University. She and I discuss: social psych, working in academia, clinical psych, teaching at a university, tenure, impostor syndrome, and being a department chair. She also gives advice to undergraduates thinking about going to grad school!
