5/18/2018 - 9:00am to 12:15pm CDT

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. Using my personal and professional experience along with basic Adlerian concepts, I will share some ideas to suggest what structures are required to keep yourself sane, your spirits high, and a smile on your face.

Objectives:

  • Who decides who the ‘client’ is and how the therapist draws the family in at the onset of therapy
  • The significance and importance of the therapist’s peer consultation outside his workplace with a focus on case presentations to keep teaching/learning from one another
  • The significance of the therapist’s understanding of his business and personal finances so that s/he can support clients in their own money matters
