and with no real sense of what methods, techniques, and styles really fit your personal temperament. In this workshop, we’ll explore ways you can begin to find yourself as a therapist: how to match therapeutic techniques with your deepest values and ideals, find models that are congruent with your own understanding of the human condition, adopt a style that suits you--challenging, laid-back, problem-oriented--and bring a sense of inner coherence to your practice. We’ll discuss how to make up for the natural experiential deficits of a young person who’s just starting out and share tips on how to find inspiring role models and mentors.
