languages and psychology

if one were going into the field of psychology and aspiring to be a therapist, what languages do you think would be best to learn, in order to most effectively help people? i anticipate spanish would be much in need, and i've been hearing more and more about many therapist positions requiring 'bilingual' - usually spanish is the language of preference.

also, if i wanted to do research in the future with cross-cultural psychology and east asia, which language do you think would be best to study: chinese, japanese, korean, or vietnamese? (or perhaps some other language entirely :) i want to focus on domestic violence and anti-trafficking activism and as this is still so pervasive in east asia, i thought an asian language would be especially good to study - i just can't decide which one!
