I've finally decided to share my first career mod!

***This career mod was Updated for 1.63.133.1020**

You are required to have Spa Day, Parenthood, Jungle Adventures and Get to Work game packs due to certain skills necessary for each track (parenting, wellness, local culture)


As a grad student, you will learn all of the basic tools and skills necessary to become a Clinical Psychologist.

As a Clinical Psychologist, you will meet with patients to identify problems (emotional, mental and/or behavioral)in their lives. Through observation, interviews, and tests, you will diagnose any existing or potential disorders. Then, together with the client, they formulate a program of treatment according to the client's needs.
You may also conduct research, and publish research in journals.

Neuropsychology is a branch of psychology that focuses on how the brain and the rest of the nervous system influence a person's cognition and behaviors. As a neuropsychologist, you will often focus on how injuries or illnesses of the brain affect cognitive functions and behaviors.

Forensic psychology can be considered a combination of law and psychology. This field of psychology focuses on many areas, which include screening paramilitary officers, assessing fitness to stand trial, custody issues and of course on the criminals themselves. Forensic psychologist work to figure out why certain types of people commit crimes; what type of person committed a crime; and how to prevent people from committing crimes. Research is a big part of the field as well. You can study criminals and their crimes, to determine what traits certain types of criminals have.

As a child psychologist, you will assess and treat children and adolescents. You will help children cope with stressors (parental divorce, death, family or school issues). You will also address a variety of developmental issues, from learning disabilities to severe mental illness in children. Examples include attention deficit disorder, autism spectrum disorder, conduct disorder, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobias, and adjustment disorder.

If your sim decides to take the academic route, he/she will instruct students, grades papers, create lesson plans, and even chair graduate students' dissertations. In addition to teaching psychology, many professors conduct research and submit their findings for publication in scholarly journals.


This is my first attempt at creating a career, so let me know what you think. This is just a test run. I may even decide to take each track and make them into separate careers.

I love this career so much, I would die to use it. Unfortunatey, I don't have jungle adventures as I really don't like the GP. I shortly considered buying it just for your mod, but I really don't need it for anything else.

So I would like to ask you if it was possible that you made a version of this mod that runs without the local culture skill? Perhaps you could replace it with a different skill?

Thank you all for your comments! I have seen the request for a version without Jungle adventure, so I will create one as soon as I can. Sorry I took so long to respond. I am actually in a Ph.D. program and quite busy. Therefore, there may be delays. I was not expecting people to like this so much, so I have to check in more often!.

I am also having an issue with the new version of the mod. Last Exception error on load-up.

Code:
Failure: 'Pallasathena115_Careers_ClinicalPsychologist' (Pallasathena115_Careers_ClinicalPsychologist) (ZipImportError: can't find module 'Pallasathena115_Careers_ClinicalPsychologist')
Traceback (most recent call last):

zipimport.ZipImportError: can't find module 'Pallasathena115_Careers_ClinicalPsychologist'
</desyncdata></report>


I put a sim in the career to just see if it works, and it does seem to work, but the LE error is annoying at minimum, and possibly actually bad.

Edit: I'm guessing it was because the .ts4script is called "Pallasathena115_Careers_ClinicalPsychologistUPDATE.ts4script" so I removed the "UPDATE" at the end. I'll report back to let you know if it fixed it.

Edit2: That did not fix it.

hi, I would like to thank you for this career, however I have something to tell you. "forensic pathology" means working in a morgue, doing autopsies, trying to figure out the disease process that killed the patient. I was really looking for a morgue career track for my iZombie sims.
