Over the years, I have witnessed valuable colleagues and heard stories of excellent professionals burning out and leaving the psychotherapy field. Why? Taking care of oneself as a therapist is a most important subject that is too frequently neglected in professional training and in our practice.

Infertility is a sensitive issue that affects not only the infertile couple but also their extended family and friends. It is an issue in which the emotional stress builds from the couple’s first awareness of their inability to conceive through the medical assessment, diagnosis and treatment. Couples struggling with infertility problems often find themselves overwhelmed by their emotional dilemma.

Training programs that integrate Adlerian concepts into skill building exercises provide solid foundations for employee growth. Translating Adlerian theory into action through collaborative and motivational practices, leaders can develop an organizational culture strengthened by the mutually respectful interplay of individual engagement and empowering leadership.
