Hi Angie.

Thanks so much for reaching out.

The books you explore should absolutely be reflective of your specific interests as a Clinician & what field of practice you plan to enter into.

For me, personally, I derived a ton of valuable information from reading work by: Carl Jung, Eckhart Tolle and Freud.

I also utilized my free access to Empirical Journals, which were a major benefit of being a student, at the time.

I also found topics like Hypnotherapy and Clinical Reporting of Near Death Experiences, quote interesting.

To keep it more grounded, I also watched a lot of Documentaries and You-Tube videos, as Produced by Mental Health Professionals, that highlighted the presentation of Clinical Diagnoses.

I hope this helps ...

Again, the most important thing is to research what interests you and is reflective of your clinical trajectory.

Much Encouragement and Support to you!
