“Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony”

Mahatma Gandhi

An expert psychologist has established themselves as an authority in their field.  He or she has specialized training and gained significant experience in certain areas. Let’s take a look at some roles associated with an expert psychologist:

Expert Witness

A psychological expert may be called upon to provide testimony in criminal or family law cases. While general witnesses must only stick to facts, a psychology expert is often permitted to offer his or her opinion about a case. An expert psychologist may interview or examine persons involved with a case to identify potential mental health issues, discrepancies in their version of events, if they are mentally fit to stand trial, etc.

Expert Opinion

A psychology expert can be utilized to offer expert opinion.  They could be called upon by employers to examine job candidates. The military and law enforcement often consult an expert psychologist to evaluate individuals for high level security clearances. Producers of reality television shows addressing specific topics of concern may utilize a psychological expert to establish credibility and offer expert opinion. Dr. Susan Pazak is a seasoned expert psychologist with a proven track record in addiction counseling and has been a featured psychological expert on the TLC series My Strange Addiction.

Expert Articles

A psychology expert often writes and lends credibility to articles and published studies. For example, Dr. Susan Pazak has contributed articles on psychology, addiction, recovery, goal attainment, symptom reduction and health and wellness to numerous websites.

Dr. Susan Pazak is considered an expert psychologist in relationships (i.e. couples counseling, marriage counseling), addiction, anger management, forgiveness and symptom management.
