CE Event: The Therapeutic Dance
The Therapeutic Dance: Keeping One Eye on the Client and One Eye on Ourselves featuring Lori Schlosser, PhD
As the pandemic continues and helping professionals experience their own trauma and the cumulative trauma of the clients they serve, it is more important than ever to become aware of how our own experiences and traumas affect our relationships with clients. This webinar will provide a review of attachment theory and the prevalence of traumatic transference when working with trauma survivors. Participants will have the opportunity to examine how their own attachment style affects their approach with clients. The concepts of empathic disequilibrium, empathic withdrawal, empathic enmeshment and empathic repression will be reviewed and discussed. Strategies for promoting self-awareness and self-care will be presented. When we do not care for ourselves or keep an eye on the therapeutic dance with clients, the likelihood of burnout, vicarious traumatization and empathic strain are real dangers for the health and well -being of the helper and the therapeutic relationship.
