Cornerstones of Career Longevity
Burnout, marginal income, and low satisfaction are common experiences for MTs. Our profession loses thousands of therapists to these issues, often after 3-5 years working, and at just the point where their experience level has them poised for more success. The wisdom from my own 40 year career, as well as that of a variety of practitioners with similar longevity, can inspire, inform, and equip therapists past these hindrances. With the ever-increasing costs of an MT education, new and developing MTs need to know that their investment holds real promise to sustain them and their families for the long-run. In addition, the growing market, especially in the over 50 age group and for healthcare treatment, calls for more mature and capable therapists to meet this demand.
Participants will be able to:
- Formulate a self-portrait of career longevity
- Identify common characteristics of MTs with decades of professional success and satisfaction
- List their strengths and weaknesses in each of the four cornerstones
- Target five action items they can pursue to build each of their four cornerstones
