Summary More than ever before, new therapists are faced with a rapidly changing field that offers a dizzying array of theoretical approaches, licensure options, and business models. Amid these mystifying career prospects, what are the most important things a beginning therapist should know? In this video, a panel of six seasoned clinicians discuss their career paths, benefits and pitfalls of the work, successful business practices, and ways to prevent burnout. Over the hour-long video, this diverse group (including MSWs, LPCs, a former HR worker with an MBA, a former musician, and a woman with a more intuitive approach to the work) speak to six different topics: traveling along the career pathway, the ebbs and flows of private practice, getting a job, concerns about the field, managing burnout, and a word to the wise. Firmly opinionated, they discuss everything from the joy of watching clients "become powerful" and the incredible variety of skills one can employ (i.e., blending private practice with university teaching and speaking) to the pressures of maintaining health insurance and "keeping the lights on" in private practice, as well as the manipulative clients that may enter your office. You'll gain valuable information about a range of issues, a primer on the need to leverage your social networks to find choice jobs, and tips for making your practice burnout-resistant. With plenty of useful food for thought, this is a great resource for those just starting out or those supporting new therapists' growth. By watching this video, you will: Understand several possible educational, clinical, and blended career paths available to counselors and psychotherapists. Discover business strategies and the importance of leveraging your social networks to find jobs. Learn ways to practice adequate self-care and prevent burnout.
