The course explores participants’ experiences of feeling adequate or inadequate for the therapeutic profession. It examines supervision experiences that either helped reduce or contribute to feelings of inadequacy. Information about Imposter Syndrome in the therapeutic profession is provided, including its prevalence, signs, and contributing factors. Strategies to reduce Imposter Syndrome in oneself and others are discussed. The course emphasizes the role of documentation in promoting continuous learning and growth rather than fear and conformance. Case examples are given to identify signs of Imposter Syndrome, contributing factors, and strategies to increase clinician confidence.

Objectives:

  • Participants will understand and be able to identify signs of Imposter Syndrome in themselves and others.

  • Participants will learn strategies to help them reduce Imposter Syndrome in themselves and those they supervise.

  • Participants will learn strategies to leverage documentation as a tool to drive positive change and growth, fostering a culture of continuous learning and improvement rather than merely compliance.
