An important area of expertise for most of clinical psychologists is assessment, and there are indications for 81% of psychologists utilize this core clinical practice. The specialty of clinical psychology addresses behavioural and mental health issues faced by individuals across the lifespan
Clinical Psychology is the psychology concerned with the assessment and treatment of mental illness, abnormal behaviour and psychiatric problems. This field integrates the science of psychology with the treatment of complex human problems, making it an exciting career choice for people who are looking for a challenging and rewarding field.
American psychologist Lightner Witmer first introduced the term in a 1907 paper. Witmer, a former student of Wilhelm Wundt, defined clinical psychology as "the study of individuals, by observation or experimentation, with the intention of promoting change." Today, clinical psychology is one of the most popular subfields within psychology.

• Depression and anxiety
• Mental illness
• Adjustment to physical illness
• Neurological disorders

• Challenging behaviors
• Eating disorders

Clinical Psychology involves determining the nature, causes, and potential effects of personal distress; of personal, social, and work dysfunctions; and the psychological factors associated with physical, behavioral, emotional, nervous, and mental disorders. Examples of assessment procedures are interviews, behavioral assessments, and the administration and interpretation of tests of intellectual abilities, aptitudes, personal characteristics, and other aspects of human experience and behavior relative to disturbance.
Society of Clinical Psychology:
In the attempt of measuring the occurrence of mental illness in the United States, clinical psychologists conducted a study called the Epidemiological Catchment Area Project which took part in the survey on samples of the general population at ten sites across America. In that study, it was found that about third of all Americans suffer from mental illness in some stages in their lives. This statistic is often referred to as lifetime prevalence.
Dissociative disorders were not included in the Project, as these diagnoses were recorded extremely rare, lacked standardized criteria and did not have a validated diagnostic instrument. Psychological and environmental factors have a major influence on healthy and active ageing. Mental problems are responsible for 13 % of the total disease burden worldwide.
