The Client-Therapist Relationship in Film: Ethics, Boundaries, Trauma and Counter-transference

November 25 Breakfast 8:15am-8:45am   Training 8:45am-4:00pm $169.00, 6 Ethics CEUs Presenter: Lisa Ferentz, LCSW-C DAPA Woodholme Country Club, 300 Woodholme Ave. Pikesville, MD 21208 United States + Google Map

In this creative, interactive, and fun workshop, participants will have the opportunity to process and analyze the fascinating client-therapist dynamics depicted in popular cable and network TV shows. As we follow the therapist’s relationships with a variety of clients, as well as his own therapist, we will dissect issues including appropriate versus inappropriate boundaries, limit-setting, and the proper use of self-disclosure. We will also use these relationships to identify specific transferential and counter-transferential dynamics that can emerge in treatment and process how to navigate through the clinical dilemmas that are often created when these issues surface.
