Ernesto’s Answer

Hi!
According to my long experience as advisor of students and graduated people, is that the very first thing you should take into account is if you like it, you feel self-confident, confortable and you think that you could be a good fit for that specialty and the specialty could also be a good fit for you! The question of "how much" is easier to answer when you first answer what I mentioned above.
It takes time and patience to know your strenghts and weaknesses or limitations when you study a career and even more when you think about a specialty. Self-knowledge is the very core of any career. The better you know yourself, the easier will be the answers you need to find when you are interested in a specific specialty in your career.
I hope that my answer is useful for you.
Best wishes

Hi Dani,

To have your best chances of success in child psychology or social work, an advanced degree such as MSW, Licensed Mental Health Counselor,
Ph.D., or similar credentials is usually necessary in order to get high quality jobs in the field. When choosing which type of degree you'd like to pursue, I advise that you look carefully at the curriculum for the specific program you choose, so that you feel comfortable about how you will be spending a few or more years completing the degree. Talk with people in programs you are interested in pursuing, including professors and students. Only enter a program if you feel confident that it will be right for you.

I hope this helps.

Mark V.
