I’ve never Bloged before and I find myself asking how I’m going to balance being real and raw which is important to me and at the same time be professional and not have my posts negatively impact my work with my clients. I’ve decided that I won’t be posting about my personal journey through the role as a mom, wife, sister, and daughter but instead i’ll limit to my experience as a therapist who is bilingual serving primarily the Hispanic community.
Working With Core Beliefs of “Never Good Enough”
The National Institute for the clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine is offering an online course on working with core beliefs of "Never Good Enough". You can purchase CE/CME credits and the coarse is reasonably priced. I' am more than half way through and so far my thoughts are that the content is presented in an intriguing manner and that it will be valuable information that I can apply to my practice. UNR professor, Dr. Steven Hayes is a contributor. Marsha Linehan, DBT guru shares her approach to "feeling not good enough". In conclusion, I recommend this course.
