    Are there times that you secretly worry that clients will discover that you are not as competent as they think you are? If so, you may be experiencing what Clance & Imes (1978) termed the “impostor phenomenon”. The purpose of this presentation is to normalize impostor moments while at the same time recognizing the impact that the impostor phenomenon can have on our therapeutic work. Suggestions will be shared on how to minimize the effects of the impostor phenomenon in our work with clients.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Participants will develop an enhanced understanding of the impostor syndrome.
    2. Participants will explore the impact that the impostor syndrome can have on their work as therapists.
    3. Participants will be provided with potential solutions to dealing with the impostor syndrome.
