The workplace should be an environment where we feel safe and comfortable. However, because work is where many different personalities, communication styles, and worldviews may come together, things don’t always go smoothly.
Examples of common workplace issues include: LEARN TO USE YOUR STRENGTHS TO:
- Poor job fit * Choose a career path
- Sexual or verbal harassment * Perform better during interviews
- Discrimination * Develop a learning and development plan
- Low motivation and job dissatisfaction * Get a promotion
- Job-related stressors
- Military or Civilian Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
How a Therapist Can Help
Therapy for work and career issues can help a person develop a better understanding of their wants and needs as well as approach alternative ways to manage stress while at work. Therapy is a neutral setting where patients can discuss their fears, worries, or stressors and regain control of their well-being.
Therapy tends to work well when addressing workplace issues because talk therapy can effectively treat the depression and anxiety that can stem from these conflicts. A mental health professional can also teach coping skills that will help a person manage work-related stress.
