Sarah Putt, MA, OTR/L, is an occupational therapist and is the founder and clinical director at Sarah Bryan Therapy.
On this episode, Sarah and I continue our conversation from Episode 11 as we talk about mentorship in the field of occupational therapy, including the process for and benefits of becoming a mentor, finding a mentor, transparency and teamwork, and non-traditional mentors.
I took the AOTA fieldwork educators certificate course, and that really got me thinking about [using a] more collaborative model [in fieldwork education and mentorship]." ~Sarah Putt
Resources and recommendations from Episode 12:
Always believe in yourself, and, if you're passionate about doing something, go do it. A lot of times you'll come out of [OT] school and you feel like you don't know everything, and that's ok! You can still accomplish whatever it is you want to accomplish." ~Sarah Putt
Ways to connect with Sarah:
It's something I'd like to see our professional organization ... take more of a firm stance about: It's our responsibility - and really it's our privilege - as OT practitioners to "pay it forward." ~Stephanie Lancaster, on mentoring others in OT
