Chat with us, powered by LiveChat Relate to Colleagues as an MFT - Credence Writers


Assume you are sharing an elevator while attending a conference when a fellow attendee notices your nametag and credentials and asks you what exactly you do as an MFT. Prepare an elevator to talk to sell your approach as a systemic thinker that could be delivered in about two minutes. Consider approaching this assignment from a place of selling yourself and your line of work. In fact, you may want to think of it as a way to offer your business cards to potential clients.

You could mention the following concepts in a way that allows your fellow elevator travelers to understand your philosophy:

  • Feedback loops
  • Homeostasis
  • Causality
  • The whole is greater than the sum of its parts

Remember that an elevator speech must be:

  • Brief
  • Easy to deliver
  • Positive and non-defensive
  • In everyday language that people can understand
  • Free of therapy jargon

Length: 1-2 pages
