Via live interactive webinar
Fast forward thinkers, executives, engineers, therapists, nurses and individuals in various helping professions with years of experience often fall victim to Imposter syndrome. This condition does not discriminate against highly competent individuals from all walks of life. Imposter syndrome is often a debilitating condition where individuals are trapped in their own negative thoughts, skepticism of self, and self-doubt. Learn more about this condition and how to unleash clients from their own tombs of worry.
Despite the rapid and creative growth of the workforce, feeling stuck appears to be a common encounter many professionals face. Such feelings are often associated with not being good enough, not being smart enough, and not feeling confident in one's contributions to their work teams, employers and/or colleagues.
It's time to help individuals get unstuck and feel aligned to their strengths and talents. This webinar will be life changing for professionals who wish to uncover their confidence in their skills and hone their professional voice. It will cover effective CBT and Act interventions to overcome and even utilize Imposter Syndrome to move forward in life.
Upon the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify 3 common symptoms associated Imposter Syndrome (IS) and core elements of IS in action
- Utilize Socratic questioning to explore imposter syndrome stuck points
- Employ CBT and ACT treatment modalities to effectively treat imposter syndrome from an eclectic approach
- Explore cultural dynamics of Imposter Syndrome
