Field work paper

For my field work internship i am interning at a hospital as a security guard. For my paper i wanna look at the relationship of hospital staff and patient with mental illness. I had gone into this with no experience at all with dealing with people besides what i have learned from normal day to day interactions. Security is a very interesting field.

I believe i have changed my views and my own ways of handling differnt intreactions bewteen
