Product Description

Sharon Farber, Ph.D.: The Wounded Healer Psychotherapist

Monday Dec 4, 3-4 pm ET/ 2 CT/ 12 PT (via conference call)

Psychotherapists are often drawn to their future professions as a result of early traumatic experiences and being helped by their own treatment; yet they fear compromising their reputations if they publicly acknowledge such suffering in themselves.
 
Not acknowledging this can feel like a dirty secret. We have nothing to be ashamed of. We are as human as our patients and should celebrate overcoming our difficulties enough that we can help others with theirs.

Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions. Please join us!

This interview is free to attend, but registration is required. Sign up via the sidebar calendar at the TPI website.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe Jung’s concept of the archetype of the wounded healer psychotherapist, as well as the origin of the concept of celebrating the wounded healer psychotherapist.
  2. Describe how Freud’s efforts to overcome his traumatic past led to ruthless behavior that became a template for his followers to become wounding healers themselves.
