We have all known therapists who have experienced an acute, chronic, progressive or terminal illness. These existential crises touch our deepest vulnerabilities and fears. What allows some therapists to transverse this well? When our core mission is to facilitate healing, and a reason why clients come into therapy, how can we “do no harm” when we are in the midst of an illness and perhaps radical change?
Through experiential exercises, audience dialogue, synthesis of research from therapist and client interviews, a video vignette along with didactic learning, this workshop will stimulate participants with the unthinkable - to courageously engage with all our parts and create a contactful and meaningful spaciousness in the therapeutic relationship. We will unpack “Principles of Contextual Self-Led Disclosure”, utilize therapeutic trailheads and learn how it is possible to be a healing presence as we live with an illness.
