I am looking for guidance , I am having hard time writing (drafting) a convincing (sensible) SOP for a combined program I am excited about. I feel I am lacking focus and ending up sharing my interests in each and everything the program has to offer . Somehow I am unable to justify why combined programs interests me more over the other ones . I know , I feel more comfortable in learning from a combined program , getting myself trained initially in the main reals and gradually making a place for what , I should see myself doing . Secondly what should be the focus when I am writing SOP for a counseling program . I have had clinical psychology background and received training in Psychotherapy (CBT and eclectic) and Psychological testing . As I see (assume) the counseling programs are not looking much for the kind of clinical research one has done , so what should be my focus . Please share your ideas.
