Boundaries and Self-Care for Therapists

Student Salon

Facilitated by Dave Fischer, PsyD.

Cost: $20 for Non-EHNW-Affiliates, $15 for students, No Charge for EHNW Affiliates

Engaging closely with others who are in psychological distress can sometimes take a personal toll on therapists. Depending on settings and personalities, the demands of providing therapy can put a therapist at risk of burnout, demoralization, and even ethically questionable or dangerous behaviors. Acknowledging limitations, asserting appropriate boundaries, and maintaining regular self-care practices are important protections. We will discuss these issues in our salon. Students and new therapists are encouraged to attend. Seasoned professionals are welcome and invited to bring their perspectives and to share tips.

Presented by Bob Edelstein, LMFT, MFT

An aim of Existential-Humanistic Therapy is to help our clients live an authentic and actualized life. It is a therapeutic modality and a way of being. Bob will describe and explore 8 key tenets of an Existential-Humanistic perspective in therapy such as Process Orientation, Self-and-World-Constructs, and Being-in-the-World.

Bob will work with a volunteer who will explore a concern in an abbreviated interview. Afterwards, he will debrief the interview with the volunteer and the Lunch and Learn participants.

This Lunch and Learn will be 2 hours, from 1-3 PM. The charge is the same as for our regular Lunch and Learns.
