Therapist Mentoring at MM
We have personally experienced the challenges of working in sole charge positions in a rural community, where access to peer mentoring can be limited. We have been lucky enough to work with incredible therapists in our area and beyond, and have recognized the need for therapist mentoring, especially in rural communities. Paediatric therapy is very specialized and requires knowledge not only around therapy interventions, but also coaching skills and the ability to look at the child from a holistic lens that includes physical, emotional, social and developmental areas. Harnessing the power of technology, we are able to provide mentoring opportunities for interventions, caseload and waitlist management, juggling the demands of therapy and administrative tasks, and creating systems that allow for effective care delivery. Research shows that an important factor for therapists when choosing job positions is the option for mentoring opportunities and support. This can be of benefit to your organization to improve recruitment and retention. If you or your organization are interested in pursuing this option, please feel free to contact us.
What is mindfulness anyways? Well, it is a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations. So, it’s not denying your feelings or how your body feels but learning to stay calm in those moments. By ‘creating the calm’ we can focus on what we need and want to do without fear.Read Post
