As therapists, we have the unique honor of being allowed into our patients’ lives.  Because of our role, the world often doesn’t see the difficulties therapists experience in their professional and personal lives.  Because of our caring nature, difficulties in our professional lives also lead to increased shame.  Therapists need to be proactive and prepare for the unfortunate and inevitable patient scenarios, as well as those in our own personal lives.  Join us as we explore what happens when bad things happen to therapists, the impact it has on our work, and how we can do better. Join us for a Three (3) hour in person training. $50 per person, refreshments provided, and three (3) Pitt School of Social Work Credits upon completion.
