There's a lot of discussion about burnout in mental health care, and understandably so. But with this course, we wanted to change the conversation. Succeeding as a therapist isn't just about avoiding bad outcomes, it's about achieving great ones. The six happy therapists we interviewed shared the specific choices and strategies that keep them happy and thriving.
To learn how therapists stay happy and motivated after years of often-challenging clinical experience, we've spent some of our coronavirus lockdown doing remote interviews with six therapists from around the country who are thriving as mental health professionals.
These therapists each agreed to share their secrets: What makes them happy, how they've built practices that sustain their happiness, and what advice they would give to colleagues hoping to make their work fulfilling across the career span.
