Hey Daniel, First, I just want to thank you for making your videos/documentaries/books. Thank you for sharing your experience. I found your videos at a turning point in my life last year, age 26. I had just started working at a group home/CMHC. I was contemplating medical school, and your videos (along with my experience at work) pushed me towards counseling instead. I identified somewhat with your history. More subtle, rather than extreme traumas, which still managed to separate me from my true self and leave pretty serious damage. Slowly started healing through high school. Studied Biology in college, partially to please my parents and give them hope that I may become a doctor in the future. I threw in Anthropology as well as a means of rebellion. Then after graduating, I took off 4 years to work at a record store and travel on tour with bands. I plan to go to ICSW in Chicago this coming fall (they have a more psychodynamic leaning program). In counseling, I would like to work with people that have received more severe diagnoses (i.e. schizophrenia, bipolar, etc.) Wondering if you have any general advice on school, becoming a therapist, or recommendations on texts/case studies related to resolving schizophrenia through intensive psychotherapy.
