As I reflect on my MS in Psychology program journey, I have gathered in-depth insight into understanding human behavior and factors that influence an individual’s conduct. While focusing on personal development, I have learned the importance of reflecting on my strengths and weaknesses to make informed decisions on crucial issues in my life. I believe that understanding myself helps me improve how I relate with others. In this case, studying aspects, such as self-injurious behaviors have helped me learn how to help clients address this concern for their wellbeing.
