Triggered in Sessions? Tools to Handle Delicate Situations

All clinicians occasionally experience some reactions or countertransference when working with a particular client. This workshop offers guidance and a toolkit to be used in the management of delicate moments when we, the clinicians, get triggered. Using lecture, discussion and optional experiential activities, we will learn some of the typical indications that you may be triggered and/or in a dissociative state. This workshop explores why it matters if and when you are triggered and participants will process when and how to calm the body and mind, as well as how to use the wealth of information our reactions provide about the therapeutic process taking place. The workshop goals include an understanding of why we might get triggered, how to resource ourselves when we are in session, and to explore implications in support of our clients. This workshop will provide attendees with enhanced skills and techniques to further build their practice repertoire.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
