In a rapidly changing field, new therapists are facing unexpected challenges as well as uncharted opportunities. Designed for clinicians in training or those who graduated within the last five years, this workshop will help the emerging generation of therapists understand the supports they need to grow in this work and voice the ways they want to expand the culture of psychotherapy and shape its future. Through community-based dialogue and experiential exercises, you’ll explore:
- How to identify your clinical interests, ideal clients, and real-world passions
- Opportunities to increase intergenerational collaboration and build relationships with mentors who will invest in your development
- Strategies for overcoming obstacles and stereotypes, such as “millennial entitlement,” theoretical purism, or that you must have a PhD to have an impact
- Innovative ways to make therapy more accessible and creative
