Use of Touch in Psychotherapy Workshop June 20, 2020

Tired of the same old LAW AND ETHICS workshop?

Join us Saturday, June 20 for this dynamic & interactive workshop and earn 6 CEUs to fulfill your law and ethics requirement.

Participants will:

    •     identify four uses of touch in their private practice; 
    •     describe three types of touch in therapeutic practice;
    •     identify three types of boundary considerations pertaining to touch and;
    •     identify three countertransference issues that arise with the use of touch.

“If a therapist decides to touch a given patient, s/he must do so in a thoughtful manner and must be willing to accept responsibility for the patient’s interpretation of the touch. Likewise, if the therapist decides not to touch, there must be a similar willingness to accept responsibility for the meanings that the patient will assign to the absence of a natural form of human contact.” (The Therapist, March/April 2011, Guest & Parker).
Intended for licensed & pre-licensed mental health professions & master & doctoral-level clinicians, physicians & psychiatric nurses.

Cost:  $115 registration fee.
