These psychologists help teachers find ways to work with students and may assess the educational potential of students.

They then offer insight to people such as social workers, community nurses, child welfare workers, etc. On effective ways to reach people influenced by the stressors. Applied psychologists apply psychological theories to real life cases.

Clinical psychologists are people who usually work with individuals, small groups or families on addressing specific problems which are interfering with their lives.
