Thank you

Thank you for much for sharing this and giving me a great insight into the future. As first year social works student, I am learning the ropes and I have my first official placement in Jan. It is going to be cough, but thank you so much :) I don’t feel alone now.

Great Thank you from Luxembourg

Very great article that helps seeing things differently. A lot of social workers plays superheroes and try to hide their own questions and difficulties.

I can tell this is real, and not always easy to share such intricacies. Thanks again. Thanks for being real.

Thanks for sharing this. When I worked as a mental health therapist (no formal training, pursuing my LCSW) I needed to see this. I loved working with the individuals I counseled but hated the effects it sometimes had on me.
