According to some studies, 9 out of 10 clinicians describe themselves as “above average.” Although it is probably true that they would like to be viewed as a master or an above average therapist, it is unlikely. Most counseling students plan to be master therapists once they have put in the suggested 10,000 hours needed for mastery, but few reach this enlightened state. This program will describe the process that is necessary to achieve mastery in psychotherapy. The presentation will blend research with professional interviews from acknowledged masters, as well as personal discovery or wisdom.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the process needed to achieve mastery.
  2. Identify the stumbling blocks to mastery.
  3. Explain the importance of meaningful feedback.
