This episode, we talk about working weekends. Do you do it? Do you feel like it helps or hurts you? We’ll share what we do, and feel free to chime in on the conversation. We also answer a listener question - what do you say when people ask you what you do for a living? If you are an SLP, you are used to blank stares or odd comments when you tell people what you do for a living. Sarah and Sarie share the strangest things they’ve been asked at parties after revealing they are SLPs, and you are going to want to hear these stories. The bulk of this episode discusses client success factors. Do you work with a variety of clients? Do some clients seem to have a bad attitude or get upset easily? Do you have other clients who seem interested in getting service and then seem to disappear, never to be seen again? Well, you might be ready for your clients - but you need to be able to answer the question - are your clients ready to work with you? The discussion is based on the research of Prochaska & DiClemente, 1983; Prochaska, DiClemente, & Norcross 1992. We’ll also propose a self care challenge that’ll get you knowing your clients even better, and using your time even more effectively in your speech room.

We also talk about what is new in our speech room - which is being chronically late this time of year (because we are over booked?) and what we are doing about it. Sarah shares a lesson gone wrong and what her new nickname is according to a new client. We won't put it in the show notes, but listen in if you are curious.

This episode answers a listener question: The job of being an SLP is so busy and I feel like there is always more to do. How do you know when you just need to keep your nose to the grindstone and hustle away at the work, and when it’s time to stop, step away, and take a break? If you find yourself powering through a season of overwork or deadlines, this is the episode for you. Sarah shares how powering through is sometimes helpful and when she’s had to do it. Sarie shares that powering through is the name of the game for a lot of the CF year. The discussion then moves along to how to have more boundaries and time and when it’s time to not hustle. We also talk about - what do you do when you are out sick (for more than a day or two) as an SLP? We also discuss difficult conversations with families we work with. What do you do when you need to share news about another possible diagnosis? What do you do when a client doesn't hear what you have to say? We also discuss negative mantras: what they are, and how to catch yourself in one. We end with a self care challenge to flip your perspective when times get tough. Self Care Challenge To find something you are feeling negative about, and to catch your negative work mantra. Then, if you are telling yourself a negative story about a work situation nip it in the bud. Look for evidence that your negative mantra isn’t true. Maybe you’ll find it, maybe you won’t. Lastly, reassess your negative mantra to find out if it’s true and if it’s serving you. Mentioned Story - The Two Wolves Movie - The Money Pit
