Running Head: PSYCHOLOGICAL ENCOUNTERS
Working as a psychology professional is a fulfilling job as I get to help clients facing
emotional and psychological problems to better deal with their issues. It is however challenging
as the different patients possess diverse health behavior aspects which are not healthy even for
me. A psychologist is prone to traumatization from engaging with clients going through
problems like sexual harassment, drug addiction and depression (Bach & Demuth, 2018).
Emotional attachment to work-related issues is the most significant problem I have to deal with
as people share some disturbing information during sessions which is not easy to handle. I once
engaged with a client dealing with depression from an abusive marriage and later on drug
addiction. She was affected by all these events to the point that she could not even understand

extent that I was worried about the same experiences happening in my life.
