WHY BSL? - Psychology


holly21

Recommended Posts

Hello :) 

I decided to start learning BSL as I am currently studying for a career in psychology and having just finished a placement year working with people suffering from brain/spinal injuries I thought it would  be a brilliant way to start to help me stand out from other students looking to enter a career in this sector. One thing I learnt on this placement was how vital it is that you try to understand others who struggle with communication so thought this would be a fantastic way to help with this as well as to fill my time in lockdown!

Happy to chat with anyone about the course, especially those working in the psychology/healthcare sector to share tips and advice.

I don't ever want to be made to feel like that again. Or, indeed , be treated like that again. I am now at a time in my life where I have a bit more time to learn so h
