Enriching our Clinical Work through
Intentionally Tending to Our Counter-transference
Michele Simone, LMFT (41657) LPCC (1639)
Using a somatic psychotherapy lens, we will explore where we get stuck in our work with our clients and how to utilize awareness of our counter-transference to get "unstuck" and allow the work to unfold with more ease.
This course is designed to help:
- define and identify types of counter-transference
- clarify when counter-transference helps and when it hinders the work with clients
- learn how to utilize our counter-transference to support our resiliency and recovery from vicarious trauma
