Season 6: Episode 7: We all hit a wall sometimes as clinicians, don't we? Daniel Shaw, M.S., CCC-SLP, joins host Sara MacIntyre, M.A., CCC-SLP, to brainstorm ideas for when we feel stuck as clinicians. They emphasize the importance of acknowledging and normalizing navigating clinician problem-solving moments, even among seasoned clinicians! They share ideas and resources that have helped them regroup or change course to meet their clients' needs. Daniel and Sara take an intentionally informal, conversational approach in this episode, bringing listeners into what would be a very typical 'phone a friend' clinical problem-solving conversation they have together as colleagues and collaborators. They share clinical examples and favorite resources back and forth, acknowledge their own areas of continued growth, and hopefully normalize the problem-solving and troubleshooting process for all clinicians!
