Addressing Shame in the Therapeutic Process

January 30 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Journey to Awareness – Embracing Your Shadow: Addressing Shame in the Therapeutic Process by Dr. Abi Williams. Register Here.

How often have we wondered why our clients, or ourselvesact or react in a particular way?  Early in our lives, most of us learned to hide parts of ourselves we were told were “bad”. This is what Carl Jung identified as “shadow”. These parts, however, in spite of our best efforts to avoid, continue to show up unexpectedly. By uncovering the messages or self-talk rooted in shame, we can learn from them and transform them into positive life-changing allies. This presentation examines the early life contributions that led to the need to disown parts of one’s personality and powerful tools utilized in The Daring Way™ curriculum to discover the full spectrum of one’s self. This workshop offers an opportunity to learn about healing processes that can support us, and ultimately, our clients.

Clinical Supervision On-Demand Webinar

November 12, 2014

“Advancing Clinical Supervision Skills: Ethical and Relational Management of Supervision Challenges and Malpractice Risks” by Tammy Linseisen, ACSW, LCSW. Register Here.

Online starting November 12

In Texas, Social Work licensing requires three hours of continuing education in clinical supervision topics and Professional Counselor licensing mandates six hours per biennium in order to renew approved supervisory status, recognizing the need for ongoing learning, consultation, and skill practice in this area. Clinical supervisors are often faced with challenging situations, and in many cases face these in relative isolation. Utilizing case method teaching and consultative process, this advanced training will build on the participants’ knowledge of the relational model of clinical supervision, and will address ethical considerations in supervision. The first 1.5 hours will involve supervision malpractice prevention strategies, and the second 1.5 hours will address best practice interventions with supervision challenges. The workshop will highlight supervisory situations involving professional boundaries and use of self, and is designed to enhance ethical and effective communication patterns. Take this opportunity to refresh existing skills, and to build advanced clinical supervision expertise.

Participants will be able to:

  • Build clinical supervision malpractice prevention strategies using contracting skills and professional self-awareness
  • Demonstrate understanding of the barriers to simultaneously challenging and supporting supervisees
  • Identify challenges in supervisory relationships, while using best practice strategies to determine possibilities and ethical interventions
  • Define ways to advance skills in clinical supervision relationships with regard to professional boundaries and professional use of self
