You're not the only one who wonders, "Am I a Fake?"

The Imposter Experience (also known as Imposter Syndrome) is extremely common, and it shows up in different ways. For some, it's an out-and-out questioning of their credibility or whether they belong. For others, it shows up more subtly as over-preparedness and striving for perfection or even just a comparison to others. While comparison is an unavoidable part of being human, it's our choice of what to do next.

Dog professionals like vets, behaviorists, and trainers routinely disagree on methods and approaches, and there's so very much to learn in this ever-expanding world of knowledge. This can leave us wondering whether the others might actually be the 'real' experts. We also tend to not prioritize our own self-care as much as we could, which ultimately ends up robbing the world of our talents.

But if you're still reading this description, the word Imposter has struck some kind of chord, so you likely could benefit immensely from this presentation.

For this webinar, I've brought in a psychologist to help guide us through the ways we can actually turn this uncomfortable experience into a gift.

Live Webinar with 30 min Q&A Session: Tuesday May 31, 2022. 9am Pacific Time.

Will be recorded for registered attendees to watch at a later time.

  • Suitable for pet owners, trainers, behaviorists, shelter workers and anyone looking to expand your knowledge and skills to support dogs..

  • Learn the surprising and hidden ways that Imposter Experience can show up.

  • Discover ways to address your particular expression of Imposter Syndrome.
