Using a developmental approach, Curt Widhalm and Katie Vernoy discuss the functional and emotional challenges for therapists at each career stage. Therapists at all career stages will feel heard and understood -- and ready to tackle what comes next.
At every stage of development for therapists, there are risk factors and systemic challenges that can lead to burnout. Without directly addressing these issues, therapists may struggle to provide as much help to clients as they could, and even to continue to pursue psychotherapy as their career. This course identifies the specific challenges and risk factors encountered by therapists at each stage of the development process, and offers specific tactics you can use to survive and thrive as a modern therapist, wherever you are in your career.
