Could an Occupational Therapist benefit from a Social and Human Services Assistant advanced training?

I'd like to gain a masters in Occupational Therapy and my institute is able to provide advanced training in Human Services Assistant. I'd also like to expand my knowledge and experience within the field while still having something correlated to my main career path.
I'm curious to know if such advanced training aligns with that career path and if it's worth investing in it.

Norma’s Answer

Occupational Therapy is different from Human Services Assistant. However, getting a degree in Human Services Assistant will give individuals the knowledge they need to aid the families of any individual who has a motor skill disability to find a hospital and therapy in different facilities. An Occupational Therapist's job is to work with everyone by helping them to heal physically.
A Human Services Assistant is one who helps the families get and find different financial assistance, medical, housing, and even mode of transportation. One can get any degree they want, however, the main idea is to know what you truly love and would want to spend your days doing from early in the morning to late at night.

No! There would be no benefit to be honest.
