Ideally, mental health professionals set aside our needs in the interest of our clients; however, because therapeutic relationships are intimate human interactions, our personal needs inevitably enter our work. How do we discern when we are at risk to cross the line? How do we work with the personal needs that are propelling these potential transgressions? How do we find the “middle path” between boundaries that may be too rigid or too loose? Most mental health professionals know ethical “rules,” but often have little opportunity to ponder more nuanced situations.
This experiential workshop includes didactic material about psychotherapy and Buddhist psychology, sitting meditation, group discussion of ethical issues and exploration of meditative experience.
This workshop is appropriate for mental health professionals who are new to meditation as well as more experienced meditators. It is appropriate for those who integrate mindfulness practices into their therapeutic orientation and those who do not.
Cost: $100-$200. Honestly consider what you can afford. If you are able to pay on the higher end, this will support others who are experiencing financial challenges.
