Can I work on independent research while not being a high school student?

My country’s academic system is different than the US. So, I have already graduated and I’m 18 still not in university, but I really want to do an independent research project and try to get it published somewhere. Is it possible or legitimate for me to do it on my own without teachers or help and use this project as an activity for my college application? It’s actually a passion project and not to make my application look good, however, I have seen that most of these are done with mentors and such and I don’t have one available and I am unsure on where and how I could find one. I wouldn’t need a lab because it’s for a psychology social research, I would just need people to answer a few questions I would formulate on a form and I would go from there.

Can you get an associate's degree in one subject and a bachelor's in another?

I am an aspiring LCSW in sophomore year. I am taking my associates in college this year, but I don't know if I should major in Psychology and English or Sociology and English (I have to take a college class for English, but It was also recommended that I take another dual college class as well). In college I want to major in Sociology, and I was wondering that if I were to take a Psychology class would it look perplexing on my College application.

Marriage Family Therapy (MFT) programs in California?

Hello! I am an undergraduate Psychology student in my last year of undergrad. I will be applying to in-state graduate schools this fall, but I worry about how competitive MFT programs are. As a first generation student, I’m worried that my experiences are not good enough. The only relevant experience I have is interning abroad with a social worker conducting therapy in a vulnerable population, being a peer resource mentor for psychology students on campus, and peer mentor for students with diverse cultural backgrounds (with emphasis on mental health and well-being). I have a 3.7 GPA and want to apply to CSU MFT programs. I don’t have a lot of time to devote to other extra curricular at the moment as I am currently holding two jobs as a peer mentor. What was your experience like applying to MFT programs? What were your stats? Did you take a gap year (if so, what was it like)? What programs would you recommend? How was your MFT program? Where are you now? I appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions! I want to a bit more prepared, so thank you for helping me out :) #MFT #marriagefamilytherapy #marriagefamilytherapist #LMFT #psycchology #psychologygrad #psychgrad #psychgraduate #psychgraduates #psychologygraduate #psychologygraduates #psychstudent #psychologystudent #psychstudents #psychcologystudents #gradschool #graduateschool #applyingtogradschool #counseling #therapy #familytherapy #csu #csun #sfsu #csus #csulb #csuf #csudh #usf #pepperdine #therapist #therapists

How do I pave a road for success when wanting to get into drug and alcohol counseling?

I'm taking an online coarse at my local community collage but its not a two year program, its a set of 7 week classes, when i look online at how to become a drug and alcohol counselor it says you need a masters and a state licence to practice but I'm not taking a masters, would I have too? Pretty much what I'm asking is if i want to be a drug and alcohol counselor what would I need to do/work on in order to obtain said job. Thank you very much!

I need help deciding what I would like to major in.

Hey! I have a general idea of what job I would like to have. I know I want to do something science based, I just have no clue what exactly I want to do. I was leaning towards something more medicine related, but then I think I decided Biology was more of my thing. I just want a fulfilling job, any advice?

Why are counselors important when it comes to mental health?

My dream career is to be a mental health counselor. Mental health counselors talk to a patient and get to know the person, they do this so they can give advice or feedback that relates more to the patient and their struggles. Speaking from personal experience I have found that counseling does work when you let it and find the right person for you. Once you find the right counselor it's easier for you to talk about things and easier for you to start working on yourself and your struggles. I did counseling for 3 years straight and switched through a bunch of medications until I finally let counseling help me and started taking the things my counselor told me to heart, he told me to start finding things I enjoyed and using them as a release for my darkness that I battle with, and I'm proud to say I have done these things and I'm doing better than I have been in a long time. Mental health counselors can save lives.

Work values for an academic counselor

In a high school setting, many students have extreme issues, be it with mental health, family, drugs, poor academic performance, etc. As a counselor, it should be one of your core values to care. However, where is the line drawn? To what point can you help them without crossing boundaries or compromising yourself?
