Brief Therapy formats, including walk-in, often occur in fast-paced environments with minimal opportunities for reflection or support. The time-limited nature, as well as the unpredictable and vast range of presenting problems that clients are facing, creates an intensity that may not be present in other service delivery models.
While rewarding, it can be challenging, especially if less supervision or support is available. In Practitioner Resilience in Brief or Single Session Therapy, participants will learn and practice skills to support others in either peer or supervisory settings. The Practitioner Resilience training will be interactive, drawing on participant experience and offering opportunities to connect with peers and practice skills that enhance self-reflection and resiliency. This training is comprised of two 3-hour interactive sessions over Zoom.
This training can be a useful follow up opportunity for those who have completed the Brief Therapy Certificate but is open with no prerequisites to any practitioner or person who feels it is relevant to their work.
