Workshop 16 – John Norcross, PhD – Leaving it at the Office: Psychotherapist Self-Care
What about you – the psychotherapist? Conducting brief treatment 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, and interactive discussions; leave with an individualized self-care plan.
- List at least 6 self-care strategies for psychotherapists supported by the research
- Conduct periodic self-assessments of the effectiveness of personal self-care
- Produce an individualized action plan
