This is a virtual workshop that will be conducted via Zoom

Being a parent can be an inspiring, exhausting, and transformative endeavor. The same might be said of being a therapist. Our commitment to being the best parent and the best therapist we can be often leads to feeling conflicted, divided and under-resourced.

Our lives as parents and as therapists are looking different these days. With daycare centers and schools closed, telehealth, and new fears among us, our worlds are overlapping in new and unforeseen ways. 

We will discuss the overlap of being a parent and a therapist both now and in recent times that felt more familiar to us. 

We will meet by Zoom and use whole group discussion, breakout rooms for partnering, and some camera-off time for individual, reflective writing.

You will receive a zoom link and an outline one day prior to the workshop date

The Pregnant Therapist:
Navigating the Therapeutic Relationship

Thursday, June 17
 10 am - 1 pm

Facilitated by Amy Chandler, LCSW

Fee: $85 (3 CEUs included)

This is a virtual workshop that will be conducted via Zoom

Due to health and safety precautions with Covid-19, this three-hour workshop will be virtual.

A therapist's pregnancy is an unavoidable self-disclosure, which impacts the therapeutic relationship in both challenging and enriching ways. For therapists pregnant during Covid-19, there are further considerations: the therapist's full body is not visible over telehealth; there is less certainty as to when the client and therapist will meet again in person, and anxieties around health and staying in connection are heightened.  The complex feelings and interpersonal dynamics which can arise are stirring for the client, and also for the therapist. 

This three-hour virtual workshop provides a forum for therapists to share experiences, discuss themes, reflect on the circumstances unique to being pregnant while sheltering in place, and together explore this transformative time.  

You will receive a Zoom link and an outline one day prior to the workshop date.
