(Well... actually my real interest is in neuroscience)
I quit my fairly well-paid IT job to get a masters in counseling. I'm barely into my internship but I love it! Once I get hired to for a real job, I'm pretty sure I'll make 30% less to begin with, but money really isn't everything.
& I am, um, older than you are. Don't let whatever age you are stop you either.

I'm currently working on writing material in a few branches of psychology connected with people I've known, studied under, or worked with in the past. These cover a rather wide range running from the early 1970s up to the present (including Behaviorism, Sid Jourard's self-disclosure work, Rogerian Client-Centered Non-Directive methods, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis first of Berne and then followers like Harris, Virginia Satir's group psychotherapeutic work, Jungian, and even some traditional psychoanalytic approaches -- followed by many of the subsequent applications and developments that occurred over the years following in ancillary fields outside of formal "therapy.".)
If anyone can speak to or about this, or refer me to others here at Library Thing, I would be most appreciative of any word or words sent my way.
With sincere thanks in advance. -G.R.
Greetings, CivilWarWriter, and thanks for the civility of taking time to answer my query tossed out into the dark. Nice to see a human touch -- especially when coming from those in the "helping professions." ;- )
I'll start a list of people here at Library Thing interested in "psychological" things in general, and you are at the top of it.
How refreshing to find one with such a well-developed literary sense accompanying the other interests found in your profile. I'll treat myself to reading your ample supply of reviews there, as a way of acquainting myself with my Library Thing associates.
With kindest thoughts,
I have done a lot of work with those suffering from substance use disorders, personality disorders (B), and trauma survivors. I work quite a bit with our homeless population. Interested in learning more from others.
