  1. Shoutout fellow INFJ!!
    I love this post, and I find it extremely valuable to learn about as someone who wants to pursue a career in social work. In fact, I’ve just recently completed my applications for various Master’s of Social Work programs and I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of admissions decisions in March/April!!
    I definitely look forward to the opportunity to work as a therapist if I am accepted into one of the MSW programs, and it’s great to learn about burnout and emotional consequences of working as a therapist before I begin the program!
    Thanks for sharing, I look forward to reading more about your work experiences!
