In psychoanalysis and other traditions a personal analysis is a required part of professional training.
In modern clinical psychology training it is something of an optional extra but well worth considering for a number of reasons.
Potential benefits of therapy while trainingEdit
- Life is stressful and trainees are only human. Like anyone else the visssitudes of life can overwhelm us and we are not immune from death, divorce, longterm illness because we are trainees. We may require therapeutic help simply because we are troubled, depressed, anxious enough.
- Training is stressful and can highlight personal and interpersonal problems which it might be helpful to work through
- It is useful to see a qualified professional at work at first hand. This can help demistify the business of psychological help and aid professional thinking at a number of levels.
