As therapists, we are our own greatest tool. But how does one come about becoming their own best tool? And what personal components go into the cultivation of this therapeutic self? And what does this inner work look like? These questions and professional development are particularly relevant for those of you listening on today's podcast that are early-career practitioners, cultivating clarity about your why in coming into this field, identifying your strengths, and doing your own inner work, such that you can bring authenticity presence and courage to your therapy. In this episode, Dr. Graham Taylor speaks with Dr. Guy Macpherson, clinical psychologist, creator of the Trauma Therapist Project, and the host of the Trauma Therapist Podcast, about the importance of authenticity and defining your role in the healing process. If you’re working with people who have been impacted by trauma, working in this area alone is very challenging. The Trauma Therapist Project is creating a community and safe space for trauma therapists to care for each other, share their experiences, and encourage each other.
