Professional Webinar Panel Discussion
Finishing graduate school and gaining licensure as a new therapist can be an exciting yet scary and overwhelming experience. New clinicians are often flooded with questions about the next step in their careers. In this webinar, three expert clinicians will provide professional guidance by discussing the importance of specializing as a therapist and what steps to take in order to achieve competence to best help their clients.

Learning Objectives 

1. Be able to differentiate between a generalist who treats anxiety and depression and a clinician who specializes in treating anxiety, depression and related disorders 

2. Be able to identify the benefits to clients when therapists specialize in the treatment of specific disorders and patient populations 

3. Be able to describe potential steps to take in order to gain expertise, and name several training opportunities available to graduate students and new clinicians looking to specialize in treating anxiety, depression and related disorders
