When Therapists Get Stuck:

Using NARM to understand therapists’ own emotional themes that may disrupt the therapeutic process

with Larry Heller, PhD, author of Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image, and the Capacity for Relationships

February 16-17, 2018

Dr. Heller says,

As therapists, it is very important for us to understand our own motivation to be in this profession. Two of the main roadblocks to more effective therapy that I have seen in the many thousands of supervisions that I have given over the years are the need to compulsively caretake, and the tendency to take on too much responsibility for the therapeutic process. These countertransference dynamics are at least in part the result of our own unresolved issues.

In this seminar we will explore these and other countertransference dynamics that create unnecessary stress for ourselves and limit our effectiveness.
