The Modern Therapist Blog

Our blog is here!

  • You Don’t Have to be a Thought Leader (blog) - You have undoubtedly heard that you should start a private practice and that you should not take insurance or that you should have a side hustle or that you should definitely not work in community mental health. You may have even inferred these things from what we and our interviews with fellow #moderntherapists have said […]
  • OK Boomer is Coming to the Mental Health Workforce (blog) - “OK Boomer” is going to come to the mental health workforce We haven’t exactly shied away from looking at generational differences in the mental health labor force. While the debate continues on about what exactly is happening, what has seemingly been lost in the mix is why this is happening. Generational differences have existed for […]
  • What is my responsibility? (blog) - It’s been almost 2 weeks since Therapy Reimagined 2019. Curt and I connected with so many #moderntherapists in impromptu conversations, in-depth discussions during workshops, and in our live podcast where we talked about how we are defining the #therapymovement. In reflection, I realized that we are promoting the idea that each of us must take […]
  • Therapists hating therapists: Part 2 (or 3?) (blog) - Over the last couple of months, we’ve published some stuff that has generated quite the heated discussions in the comments sections of our blogs, on social media posts, and even extending into some emails, phone calls, and personal discussions that we have been fortunate enough to continue. Most notably, we are looking at the responses […]
  • You Should Not Become A Therapist – 5 Reasons Why (blog) - Many of us are good listeners and have it in our hearts to help other people. We like to figure out how individuals think and help them improve their quality of life. But should all of us be therapists? Probably not. Being a therapist is hard, so unless you are really up for the challenges […]
  • Older therapists hate younger therapists (blog) - Why are we so bad at applying therapy skills to…therapy? For a field that is built on teaching people critical thinking about their lives, helping them develop strategies about improving their lives, encouraging personal advocacy, and fighting injustices, we do a pretty poor job of treating the workforce in our field with the same principles. […]
  • Advanced Schedule Wrangling – A Key Factor in Avoiding Burnout! (blog) - We talked recently on the podcast about the different ways that entrepreneurs and employees burnout: All Kinds of Burned Out. We weren’t able to go deeper into some solutions, so I thought I would dig in on one of the most important things that creates a sustainable career: a manageable schedule. If you’re ready to […]
  • Supervision and Employment Aren’t Separate (blog) - We can’t separate supervision from employment anymore Clinical supervision makes or breaks therapist development. While plenty can go wrong with bad clinical supervision, there is plenty of evidence that good clinical supervision makes things better. As those who have had a mix of both kinds of supervision can agree, good supervision can make the work […]
  • 3 Things I Wish I Knew Starting Out (blog) - Curt and I frequently get asked, “What would you have done differently to avoid burnout in public mental health?” That question used to stop me in my tracks. I have had ideas and philosophical ponderings about what others can do to avoid the burnout they experience. But what led me to burning out within my […]
  • We’re failing as lifelong learners (blog) - When it comes to therapist education, we have a bad case of “that’s how we’ve always done it.” Our education system is slow to change, including how to address client-informed care, working within interdisciplinary teams, and subject areas such as substance use and sexuality. This creates workforce problems where employers find that new graduates are […]
