    I'm curious! What are your thoughts on politics and speech-language pathology? Should we include political discussions in our industry? Why?? What's your take?

    I just read a bilinguistics article indicating "burnout rates are as high as 50 percent for physicians" (Bilinguistics, 2021). (You can view the full article HERE: https://bilinguistics.com/slp-burnout/).

    My theory is if more SLPs learned about how to live their life purpose and practice SLP authentically, we would reduce burnout and increase SLP retention.

    As a certified hypnosis practitioner, I've helped aspiring SLPs pass the SLP Praxis® exam using visualization strategies. Research hypnosis helps test takers reduce their test and general anxieties (Pachaiappan, et al., 2023).

    According to Hyter & Salas-Provance (2023), privilege is "unearned opportunity and advantage given to or made available to certain groups based on identity, such as race, gender and religious background, and maintained by unequal power relations between individuals or groups."

    It's necessary to reflect on how privilege shows up in our lives as service providers. By checking our privilege we can also contribute to equity and equality in our society.
