EIM faculty A.J. Steele a licensed psychologist discusses behavioral health and how both the physiological and social factors are impacting functioning clinicians. How does our behavior represent what we are thinking or feeling? How might the behavior be impacted by those things? Behavioral health is a piece of overall health and if looked at that way A.J. says it is easier to keep altogether instead of separated and look at as whole health. Listen to find out more about behavior health in the clinic.
A.J.’s Clinical Pearl: Be patient with yourself in learning new things. Once we get a degree and our license, we put the pressure on ourselves of having to know everything. If we do not think we know everything we expect ourselves to learn it in an unrealistic timeline or way and the reality, is it does not work that way. Be forgiving toward your own learning process and recognize that you are already leaps and bounds ahead of others if you are thinking about some of these things. Give yourself that credit.
