Hello and welcome back,
We dedicated an entire new episode on impostor syndrome because, although it’s not a full DSM V diagnosis, it affects professionals in every field alike, from psychology to live streamers.
Below I am adding on the sources used in the latest episode for you to check out and use on your own.
Good luck and let me know if you’ve ever felt like you don’t have enough credentials to belong in the comments.
