CORRECTION: Current Clinical Psychology Student from Mercer University Debuts an Online Journal from Which She Will Communicate Her Thoughts and Experiences to the World

This press release serves as a correction to a previous press release, published on September 15, 2021, which contained outdated information.

ATLANTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / September 18, 2021 / It is with much excitement that Emily Sakamoto, a Mercer University student studying to become a Clinical Psychologist, announces that she has launched a new blog, bolstered by three inaugural entries. The online journal is hosted by a well-known online platform, and will mostly deal with matters relating to Clinical Psychology in particular and medical science in general, as these are Emily's areas of professional and academic expertise.

The most recent installment of the blog is a photographic essay posted on June 22nd, 2021, chronicling the various aspects of Emily's professional and private life. Visitors to the blog will immediately notice high-resolution photos of Emily Sakamoto engaged in a wide variety of activities-everything from sitting in front of some greenery at the Georgia university where she conducts research, to taking one of her adopted foster kittens for a walk in a baby stroller.

In the preceding entry, dated May 4th, 2021, Emily tackles the demands of her chosen profession in a blog titled Qualities Needed to Become a Clinical Psychologist According to Emily Sakamoto. In one passage, she recounts from her firsthand knowledge the academic requirements of achieving this lofty goal. "Clinical psychologists complete approximately four to seven years of graduate school after receiving their bachelor's degrees. In total, most clinical psychologists spend between eight and 12 years in higher education," she writes, before further demystifying the long process, "In addition to classroom requirements, there are many aspects of training to become a clinical psychologist that happen outside school. In order to receive a Doctorate degree, a psychology graduate student must complete original research in the form of a graduate thesis. This thesis must be approved by your graduate committee before you can be accepted as a Ph.D. or Psy.D."

These are but two small samples from what promises to be an interesting and illuminating ongoing online journal from the Mercer University Clinical Psychology student. Emily Sakamoto intends to add original content to the blog on a regular basis, so readers who are interested in topics such as these are encouraged to keep watch for new posts in the future.

Anyone interested in reading the entirety of Emily's blog entries will find them located here.
