Free Brown Bag Lecture: The Deep Well
November 18, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
The Polizzi Clinic invites community mental health professionals to a free brown bag lecture by Dr. Brian Miller:
The Deep Well: Skills to Sustain a Career in Psychotherapy
About the lecture:
In spite of more than 30 years of research and writing about the hazards of psychotherapy—whether in the language of “burnout”, or more recently, vicarious trauma, secondary trauma, and compassion fatigue—there is no evidence-based practice to reduce the risk of fatigue (or increasing career satisfaction.) Most models emphasize “self-care” strategies for recovering from our work. This model, in contrast, defines specific evidence-supported components to allow the psychotherapist to bring dysregulation into conscious control during the work.
