Welcome and our First Keynote!

Jo Muirhead | The Entrepreneurial Clinician: How we will change health care from the inside out

This workshop is designed to help therapists and mental health professionals to identify, understand and apply our expertise in human behavior and change through the lens of entrepreneurial literacy. While most commonly applied in business contexts, entrepreneurial thinking and behavior is a baseline characteristic required for clinicians in all settings. Its application can reduce stigma surrounding mental health care, empower clients to ask for help, demonstrate the caring you have for your clients, and enable you to remain healthy, present, and resilient throughout your career. This workshop draws on neuroscience and behavioral theory to challenge unhelpful thinking, and use strengths and motivators to create a foundation for success. Concepts and applications included in this course can be applied to clients and clinicians alike.
Learning Objectives:
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Identify at least three motivators that drive their current work.
2. Apply entrepreneurial thinking to their clinical practice to support the achievement of client goals.
3. Develop specific criteria for clinical success based on a client’s behavioral and motivational characteristics.

Keynote

Tiffany McLain, LMFT | The Power of Taking: Why learning to receive leads to improved clinical outcomes and increased professional satisfaction

While mental health practitioners have made great strides in discussing death, sex, religion and politics, when it comes to money, we remain paralyzed. This course will utilize existing research about how therapists relate to money, and its connection to their family of origin, the wider professional culture and society at large. This research helps shed light on why so many therapists enter private practice with a “martyrdom mentality” that is not only problematic for the therapist, but also for relationships with clients. The course provides a 4-part framework that will address the barriers many therapists have to addressing financial issues head on. This presentation will invite the audience to examine their countertransference toward receiving, both in general and specifically as it relates to money, while working with the clients they are passionate about serving.
Learning objectives:
1. Identify three common countertransference experiences that arise when addressing fees in the clinical situation.
2. Implement clinically, ethically, and financially sound practice policies related to money, gifts, and other forms of receiving from clients.
3. Identify at least three ways in which social, cultural, and professional factors impact the therapist’s ability to effectively address clinical issues – particularly for women and minorities.
