    In this episode we discuss:
    The history of how we got here as a fieldEndless working that leads to insurmountable suffering‘Its not you it’s me’ type thinking in these systems, and a movement to the ‘It’s you not me’ phase that predicts readiness for changeStudents following the direction of liability phobic governing bodies and agenciesConditioning and wounding that stems from oppression, and the story we tell ourselvesHaving less expectations and more agreementsActing responsibly vs being responsibleThe system changing by going after what we want and by innovating from SelfhoodDifferent cultures doing things rooted in love and healing, and not fear
    Renelle Bourdage, Psychotherapist and researcher in clinical neuropsychology shares with us her story of how she took huge steps to live outside of her conditioning. First by realizing she was stuck in an unsustainable agency model, and then noticing others were not recognizing this problem. 
    She believed she was powerless in making systemic change, and ultimately reached profound burn out. From this place she saw she needed to make significant changes and she gave herself permission to take the leap.
    When she couldn’t  keep up with all the demands, whether realistic or perceived, Renelle realized she was stuck in the rhythm of the treadmill with no end, never moving forward.
    She felt the speed and structure of the way the agency model was set up to get clients off the waitlist, and she felt like she needed to be a miracle worker within a certain amount of sessions. Then getting them 'out the door' while working with their complex mental health diagnoses and managing a large caseload. 
    She shares that it led to a high burnout rate with no end, like being on that treadmill while never moving forward.  
    She realized it's also no one's fault, no one’s wrong. It's an unsustainable system and agency model that ultimately leads to compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and leaving therapists feeling depleted.
    Thanks for listening!
