Besides books, courses, and direct interactions with other providers, podcasts offer lessons on growing your therapy practice. They’re easy to incorporate into your routine or during other activities while inspiring ideas that you can use to become more efficient with your business. Some of them also shed light on certain mental health issues that can help you become a better therapist.
Along with the podcast hosts’ own experience and insight, podcasts often bring on guests to share their perspectives on running a practice, therapy, and clients—which means multiple ways to think about how you approach your own.
