I am currently a graduate student working towards my doctorate in psychology (Psy.D.) at an APA accredited university. However, I am seriously considering moving to Norway to be with my boyfriend, who is Norwegian. I have heard that in Norway, to be a practicing psychologist (i.e., have a private practice or work in a hospital), one only needs a Masters degree, not necessarily a doctorate. (I heard, in Norway, those with doctorates in psychology mainly do research and/or teach.) Is this true? If this is true, getting my doctorate would be impractical if I can practice with a Masters of Science degree (MS) in Norway, since I do not wish to conduct research or teach, only to have a private practice, or perhaps work in a hospital setting. Also, I do not currently speak Norwegian--though I plan to learn how to eventually; how will this affect my practice in Norway? If you could provide any information regarding this I would be quite appreciative. It is difficult to find answers to these questions... Thank you very much for your time. Take care, Shaun
