> There is a requirement to have at least 20 sessions of personal therapy at some point during the program. They recommend that you do that during the clinical parts, so a lot of people don't actually start their own personal therapy until they are seeing clients. I understand where the program is coming from with that recommendation; seeing clients can bring up a lot of issues. But I agree more with what I think you're implying. I don't like that so many people start seeing clients without a significant experience of being a client first.
> And, frankly, it amazes me that so many people seem to be entering the program without ever having done any of their own therapy! How do they even have any idea what the profession is like?
> I think some of it is explained by the fact that many folks who enter the program seem to be planning to work at some specific community agency. So, their own therapy experiences would not be much of a parallel to what their future clients will be experiencing. But still . . .

**yeah, I'm with ya all that way on that one Peg....
Kinda scarey.
We need to be informed consumers...
Unfortunately alot of the stuff that brings people into T makes us vulnerable to start with, and mebbe not thinking so good...sigh.
I definately think being on babble is proly akin to actaully having had some counsellor experience already under your belt.
A good thing.
Good luck on your journey.
I think counselling is proly a reallly hard, but rewarding job...
