End of Internship: Blog Post #5

Some advice I would give to anyone planning to do an internship in the field of psychiatry or psychology, is to remember that not everyone is like you. You can’t expect people, like your clients, to deal with problems in the same way that you do or to think in the same way that you do, because everyone is different. This is something that I’ve come to learn this summer and something I will take with me as I prep for a career as a psychiatrist. I would also advise them to be kind and have compassion. Being compassionate will take you a long way in this field because not everyone is compassionate and not everyone is capable of being understanding. Be what your clients need and they will cherish your help for many days to come.
