Is the best decision to take a gap year before going to college if you are unsure about your career path?

The biggest question I ask myself when thinking about college is if I am going to waste not only my time, but money I do not have if I attend college as an undecided major. One of the greatest pressures high school seniors face is the dilemma of choosing to go straight to college or to opt for...

When conducting a session with a client in therapy or counseling, what are the limits to where you can meet?

I have heard that some therapists/counselors do house calls (please correct me if I am wrong). Does this mean that the client could come to the counselor's home? What are the rules for this? I've also heard that you can't have a social life outside of the office with clients. Does this mean you...

What are the average working hours of a counselor? Does it depend on the type or individual? Is there a cut off time?

I want to say that it would be like a 9-5 job because a counselor has to have his/her own time for their life right? I also feel like sometimes clients are in placed in tough positions and see the counselor/ therapist as their only place of comfort. #counselor #therapist #family-therapy...

From a person who likes to observe someone's mental mind, how would knowing the mind, and knowing why someone does what they do help them in the future and make them become a better person. How will talking to someone and hearing their problems help you become a better person? How can sympathy...
