Although the various training options in graduate school can be overwhelming, there is often a list of requirements to follow to get your degree. But then what? All of a sudden, you face the daunting task of figuring out what you want to do with the rest of your career – and there is no program handbook! If only there were a group of mid-level and senior cognitive-behavioral professionals who could provide you with some foresight. Well, you are in luck! ABCT is committed to helping our members find their place in the field and build the cognitive-behavioral careers they want. The goal of this panel is to provide early career professionals (e.g., upper level PsyD, PhD, and terminal masters students, postdoctoral fellows, junior faculty, entry level clinicians) with wisdom learned on developing a career as a cognitive-behavioral therapist.

Our panelists will each briefly describe their career trajectory to date and share pieces of wisdom they have learned along the way. Collectively, the panelists have experience as cognitive-behavioral therapists in a range of settings, including PsyD and PhD programs, hospitals, private practices, and schools. They will share their thoughts on how to: select your first job(s), set short and long-term career goals, handle office politics as an early career professional, work as a cognitive-behavioral therapist in an environment with multiple disciplines, and develop a healthy work-life balance. The panel will conclude with a question and answer session and will review mentorship opportunities within ABCT.
