Student Salon: Imposter, Interrupted: Balancing Self in Therapy

– This event is in-person at Live True Counseling –

This salon presents a safe and supportive space for new therapists and students to explore and discuss the common yet rarely addressed issue of imposter syndrome in their profession. We’ll delve into the nuances of self-doubt, feeling fraudulent, and questioning our own competency as we navigate through the therapeutic landscape. We will not only confront the imposter within but also dissect the intricate question of ‘how much me is too much me’ in a therapeutic context. How do we balance our personal identities with our professional roles? How much of our own experiences and emotions should we bring into the therapy room? Through shared stories, expert insights, and lively discussions, we aim to demystify these concerns, helping therapists realize they are not alone in these feelings and provide strategies to manage and overcome these hurdles. By attending “Imposter, Interrupted: Balancing Self in Therapy”, participants will find validation, encouragement, and practical advice to help them become more confident and effective in their roles.
