Description

Course Format

Recorded webinar. 


This workshop will dive deeper into the various types of countertransference phenomenon and will explore how these different types of countertransference reactions can be used in clinical settings. We will put a focus on addressing the unique aspects of working with families. There will be an emphasis on the supervisor’s role in helping staff to process countertransference with clients and within themselves. It will also address best practices for use of self in psychotherapy or other behavioral health clinical work.

Both didactic and experiential teaching methods are used. Interactive participation, role play, and small group breakouts will be encouraged.

 Learning Objectives:

  1. Formulate a deeper understanding of the various forms of countertransference including the unique dynamics of family work
  2. Construct a model and framework for clinical supervision
  3. Differentiate supervision from psychotherapy
  4. Apply appropriate strategies for the use of self
