PSY-513 Safe and Effective Use of Self in Therapy (F22 WE)
The therapist’s degree of self-awareness, self-regulation and self-development has a major impact on therapeutic outcome. To enhance these abilities, students must examine their beliefs, behaviours, and blind spots. This four-day course is divided into four topics: responding to clients’ sexual concerns; balancing your needs and your clients’ needs; the wounded helper; and identifying and escaping therapy traps. Objective: the student will meet the core competencies in the safe and effective use of self in psychotherapy and other psychological services.
