How does the APA define psychology?

The APA defines psychology as: Psychology is a diverse discipline, grounded in science, but with nearly boundless applications in everyday life. Some psychologists do basic research, developing theories and testing them through carefully honed research methods involving observation, experimentation and analysis. Other psychologists apply the discipline's scientific knowledge to help people, organizations and communities function better. As psychological research yields new information, whether it's improved interventions to treat depression or how humans interact with machines, these findings become part of the discipline's body of knowledge and are applied in work with patients and clients, in schools, in corporate settings, within the judicial system, even in professional sports. Psychology is a doctoral-level profession. Psychologists study both normal and abnormal functioning and treat patients with mental and emotional problems. They also study and encourage behaviors that build wellness and emotional resilience. Today, as the link between mind and body is well-recognized, more and more psychologists are teaming with other healthcare providers to provide whole-person healthcare for patients.

Can you get a PHD or PSYD in clinical psychology in a different state than the state that you want to practice?

Absolutely! Most people do, in my experience. It doesn't matter where the school is (as long as they are an APA accredited program). The doctorate will apply anywhere in the US. Also, the national exam (EPPP) for initial licensure is the same no matter what state you're in. When you take the state licensing exam you must do it in the state you wish to practice in. Although, some states have reciprocity with each other (e.g. if you're licensed in Nebraska, Iowa might recognize your license). And, some states are notoriously harder to get licensed in than others (Illinois, New York, & California).
