I’m presenting at the Networking Luncheon at this week’s AAMFT Annual Conference in Indianapolis. (Come see!) The topic of the presentation will be the big picture of what’s happening in the field of psychotherapy: Fewer people are coming for services, they’re paying less for them, and our salaries as professionals are dropping relative to inflation. I’ll be talking about what individual practitioners can do to turn the ship. With the steps I outline in the book Saving Psychotherapy (and in next week’s talk), you can improve your own practice while helping the field as a whole. If you’d like a brief taste of what I’ll be talking about next week, I’ve recently done a couple of interviews you might like.
Shrink Rap Radio
I spoke with David Van Nuys, “Dr. Dave” of the Shrink Rap Radio podcast, here. (You can also directly download an mp3 here.) This interview is directly focused on Saving Psychotherapy, and so is most closely related to what I’ll be discussing at AAMFT next week.
I spoke with Kelly Higdon from ZynnyMe about advocacy for private practitioners here. The focus is a little different from the Shrink Rap podcast, and in this one I swear a few times. So if you’re at work, you should probably use headphones. But I like how the two interviews cover some different territory. Hopefully you’ll find it worth your while to listen to both!
If you have a podcast or publication related to psychotherapy, I’d love to talk with you too! Shoot me an email.
