GIFTS AND FAVORS IN THE THERAPEUTIC RELATIONSHIP

with Carla Leone, PhD

May 4th, 1:00 pm - 4:15 pm


Gifts and favors in therapy are the subject of much debate. And perspectives can often change over the lifespan of one's clinical practice. Under what circumstances should a therapist accept a gift from a patient and explore its possible meanings? When should a therapist decline to accept a gift? When might it be therapeutic and appropriate for a therapist to give a gift to a patient? Join us as Dr. Leone discusses this compelling topic.


Carla Leone, PhD, is the Director of North Suburban Family Psychologists, and on the faculty of the Institute for Clinical Social Work in Chicago. She is an elected member of the governing council of the International Association of Psychoanalytic Self Psychology (IAPSP), a member of IAPSP's Advisory Board, and co-founder and co-chair of IAPSP's Couples Therapy Interest Group. She is the author of several papers on the application of contemporary self psychology to couples and family therapy.


Attendees will receive light refreshments and a certificate for three CEUs. The cost is $75 per workshop.


A discount for students, retirees, or groups is available. Please contact Nina Riccardi, Director of Professional Development, for more information about any of these discounts, nriccardi@cathedralcounseling.org.



CHANGING SHAPE: MOVEMENT WITHIN THE CLINICAL FRAME

This year's Professional Development Series explores the ways clinicians move in and out of the conventional frame of treatment to best respond to clients' needs. How does a therapist sometimes decide to vary the structure of the therapy or their use of self to help promote growth?
