Abstract

The introduction of millennials into the North American workplace has spawned questions in today’s society, as their values differ from the generations previous. Younger people are becoming therapists, and some find this cause for alarm. Consequently, therapy interns and therapists-in-training are often discriminated against purely based on the assumption that they are “too young” to be qualified. This researcher-participant investigates the lived experience of a young female drama therapy student as she encounters ageism and sexism. In order to review her own experience and to critically analyze it, autoethnographic writing is utilized. Results indicate that discrimination has a negative effect on workplace satisfaction and a trainee’s ability to practice. In the future, it would be of great benefit for the scholarship on clinical training to produce more research on female and young therapist narratives.
