the application of the theories, principles, and techniques of psychology to clinical settings, for example, the treatment of psychopathology, educational psychology, or forensic psychology. It may be contrasted with psychological research, cognitive psychology, or academic psychology, in which the emphasis is on understanding for its own sake.
