Informative paper

150.216.134.233

For my informative paper I want to research the career I'm interested in. I want to be a counselor in a drug rehabilitation center once I get my masters in psychology. I want to research more about the job itself, but mostly the impact it will have on me. A huge concern I have is that my work environment will be "depressing". I understand that the job can be extremely discouraging a lot of the time, but I'm hoping the patients who are successful will make the job rewarding and make up for the negatives. I want to research more about what exactly I would be doing and the risks that come with it. I have heard horror stories about patience being violent and that's something I really have to make sure I can handle. Something else I need to look into is what jobs I could get stuck with in order to lead up to working in a rehab center. I already have the mindset of having to take whatever job I can get once i graduate because it won't be easy. After I did some research last semester I read that one job could be working in a jail. To be completely honest that sounds terrifying. I want to do as much research as I can so that I don't find out I worked hard for something I didn't want after all. After thinking about all the risks that will come with working in that environment I did consider maybe working with children. I also would like to do more research with what kind of jobs are out there to help children. I've considered occupational therapy, but I really don't know that much about it. I also need to do some research on how much money I would be making. I do know that it's not a lot especially at the beginning of my career. I need to find a specific topic to write my paper on that will at least answer some of my questions because right now my ideas are kind of all over the place.
