Ethical Considerations of the Wounded Healer
February 8 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
With COVID, we are all wounded healers.
Presented by: Howard Reznick, MSW, LCSW-C, Senior Manager, Prevention & Wellness, Jewish Community Services
As clinicians, wounds from our past may hinder or enhance our support of others’ healing. In some cases, the wounds may become our greatest source of strength in our work. This course will feature original recorded interviews with master clinicians who transformed their harsh life experiences into life-affirming growth, including:
- Miriam Adahan, Ph.D., mental health trainer and author of over 20 self-help books
- Jay Levinson, Ph.D., trusted assistant to the great Dr. Viktor Frankl (Man’s Search for Meaning)
- Rachel Markus, LCSW-C, therapist in recovery and supervisor of recovering counselors
- Yehuda Weisbord, LCPC, seasoned therapist who lost his mother, a respected master therapist herself, to COVID
Additionally, this course will review videos of Brene Brown (inspirational vulnerability) and Marsha Linahan (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy). Throughout the day there will be small group discussions to process thoughts and emotions from the provoking material.
As a result of this training, participants will:
- Discover and build strength from clinicians who transformed life trauma into dramatic growth to enhance their effectiveness with clients
- Understand the ethical considerations of projecting one’s own life experiences onto clients
- Identify at least one pivotal life experience that has shaped their practice and determine when it is in a client’s best interest to share and discuss that life experience
