What about you – the therapist? Conducting brief treatment places additional and special burdens on the person of the therapist. This workshop puts the Socratic dicta of “know thyself” and “heal thyself” into practice. We shall focus on 12 selfcare strategies that are clinician-recommended, research-based, and practitioner-tested. Come join us for focused lectures, copious handouts, group demonstrations, thought experiments, and interactive discussions.
- Generate at least 6 self-care strategies for psychotherapists supported by the research.
- Conduct periodic self-assessments of the effectiveness of their self-care.
- List the warning signs that the therapist needs a therapist?
