Guiding Staff to New Heights of
PERFORMANCE & PROFESSIONALISM
The therapeutic industry continues to thrive, offering innovative programming supported by sophisticated research, and new models of intervention are constantly being explored. Direct care staff are the unsung heroes of this work, realizing the visions of founders and implementing strategies devised by clinicians.
Unfortunately, staff frequently report that they do not have the level of training they need to feel confident and competent in meeting the challenges of this demanding work while also understanding the underlying therapeutic process.
Under pressure to provide quality treatment within budgetary constraints, it can be challenging to carve out time and resources to provide training necessary for staff to excel. Consequently, staff often feel overwhelmed, underprepared, and stressed. This contributes to burnout, causing many staff to leave the field prematurely. Talented staff leaving the field takes a heavy toll—students, programs and colleagues all suffer.
