Similarly, how I made my conclusion based on preconceived ideas before these clinical rotation, in spite of not having met any of these patients, society judge. However, the truth is most of these individuals are judge because of the label affixed to them, but rather, they are not so much different than I am. To be able to provide therapeutic care I have to be able to empathize.
