Post-lockdown adjustment, post Covid trauma, corona-induced-anxiety; whatever we call it, client and therapist alike have been affected. The boundaries have been blurred just a bit. The pandemic has leveled the playing field. To one degree or another, Covid has affected each of us, and we will process some of the transferential and counter-transferential issues that have emerged.
In addition, we will explore the lessons learned from exemplar therapists of the past and present such as Victor Frankl, Brene’ Brown, Marsha Linehan, Kay Redfield Jamison and Miriam Adahan, as well as the many recovering therapists in the field of addiction. We’ll look at the ground-breaking approaches these clinicians created out of the dark periods of their lives. Utilizing video, written exercises, discussion, small group conversations, and lecture formats, we will process the personal, psychological challenges of these major contributors in the field of therapy.
Participants will then have the opportunity to constructively look at the impact of Covid on their lives and of those they care about and care for. Within the safe space of the workshop, we will explore how each of us have navigated emotionally difficult times in our own lives and how that has informed our work with clients.
