What is it like? I know it's hard...but I want to know, what responsibilities do you have, what is your routine like?
Do you spend most of your day doing psychotherapy or taking care of medications? Do you do groups? What type of institutions do you usually get hired at and work for? I'm very interested in doing psychotherapy and research...but I would like to know more, what is this profession like...
