This interactive online course teaches practical concepts and strategies that you can use in challenging therapy situations. It helps expand your clinical skillset and enhances your knowledge so you feel grounded and effective in complex therapy situations, and aids in resiliency against reactivity and burnout.
Conducting psychotherapy creates the potential for reactive and nonempathic behavior in even the most compassionate therapy providers.
