I have my strengths after all. Psychotherapeutic practices have always come fairly easily to me. I can typically get a sense of where someone is at emotionally, validate their current state, and start to work with them on building their coping skills without much hesitation. My experience as an educator has proven itself invaluable every day - everything from making accessible handouts to teaching symptom management skills.
I also have my 'areas of opportunity' (which sounds nicer than weaknesses). My memory is a constant issue for me. It has always been problematic, but now its come to the fore. I have trouble recalling titration schedules, client's faces, etc... So, I do what I can. I create grids, I keep a PDF copy of Stahl's book open on my computer's desktop, I checkout the photocopy of their license right before I head to the waiting area, and frequently, I ask others for help. It is such a blessing to have found a workplace where the staff is not only friendly, but supportive.
This all serves as a reminder that a single kind word or some positive feedback can go a long way to provide encouragement to my peers and to my clients.
