SATURDAY MORNING SEMINAR

How do we best care for ourselves as Therapists?


Presented by Linda M MacKay
& Elisabeth Shaw


Live streaming available

Sydney University
New Law Seminar Room 100
Saturday, 29 April 2017
9.30 am – 12.30 pm

Our speakers will address this question from a variety of viewpoints with particular attention to working with trauma.

The presentation will help us think about factors which contribute to our successful practice and effectiveness as therapists, at the same time as valuing our own welfare and preserving our health and wellbeing.

Both our speakers are experienced therapists and supervisors who have written and lectured in this area of practice. They have much food for thought to offer us!
