Event description

Description

In this one-of-a-kind workshop, participants will engage in didactic and experiential work to gain insight into the behavioral, intellectual and emotional patterns that affect their clinical skills. As therapists, we rely on theoretical frameworks and clinical experience, but we bring these to life and practice by filtering them through the only real “instrument” we have – ourselves. Come fine tune this sensitive instrument with Pamela Suraci, LMFT, a team of equine facilitators, and members of your collegial community. There is no riding and no horse experience is necessary. Our equine partners ask only that you come with open eyes, ears and heart. Course Objectives: As a result of participating, attendees will: 1)Gain at least 2 skills to increase self-awareness as relates to the practice of psychotherapy 2)Describe 2 self-soothing techniques 3)Be able to identify 3 aspects of healthy connection 4)Describe 2 necessary components of maintaining connection 5)Name 2 strategies for repairing lost or broken connection 6) Gain awareness of the strengths and challenges of 3 therapeutic leadership styles 7)Communicate 3 ways in which client/community support systems can be enhanced 8)Enhance knowledge of prevention and treatment strategies for therapist burnout/compassion fatigue Join us for a truly unique CEU experience, from the inside out!
