Why you'll love this course

Ernesto Segismundo brings his trademark energy, transparency, and warmth to a clarion call for all mental health professionals: Show the world who you are. What makes you unusual isn't just something to accept, it's something to drive your work, and that will drive clients to you.

Course description

Our community and those we serve expect us to be authentic, courageous and creative. Many newer psychotherapists shy away from being their authentic selves (creative, innovative, courageous, and out of the box thinkers) because they have been shamed or coerced to stay within the box of a more traditional psychotherapist. This workshop is an exploration of the persona of the Not-Your-Typical Psychotherapist—those who dare to challenge conventional wisdom and status quo; those who are entrepreneurial, creative and innovative; those who are human first. This course discusses the benefits of therapist authenticity for both the therapist and clients.
