Conducting brief therapy places additional and special burdens on the person of the therapist. This workshop puts the Socratic dicta of "know thyself" and "heal thyself" into practice. We shall focus on 12 self-care strategies that are clinician-recommended, research-based and practitioner-tested. Come join us for focused lectures, copious handouts, group demonstrations, thought experiments, interactive discussions and participants' own material.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe six self-care strategies for psychotherapists supported by research.
  2. To describe how to conduct periodic self-assessments of the effectiveness of therapist self-care.
