In America, psychologists
are trained as generalists by means of a rigorous and
prolonged programme that combines academic coursework and
supervised clinical experience. The goal is to equip them
to assist many different kinds of people with a wide range
of concerns. However, during the past 29 years of clinical work, Kenneth Demsky has developed several areas of special expertise which are outlined on this website.
