Politics in Counseling and Psychotherapy
Date: February 13 2014 5:00pm - 8:00pm Location: TBD, Lewis & Clark
TBD, Lewis & Clark
Therapists often get confused when clients move into territory that could be called political, whether it is in a micro-aggression toward the therapist, an overt request for a discussion of a political issue, working on aligning political values with lifestyle, or unconsciously experiencing the effects of world events or the general socioeconomic environment.
This workshop reviews the many ways in which politics cannot be left at the door of the consulting room, and clarifies ethical strategies for addressing such moments within the framework of social justice counseling.
Participants will have the opportunity to share their own dilemmas in this area, and work toward solutions.
This workshop is part of our 2013-2014 Workshop Series
