Practicing With Grace: Balance, imperfection, humanity, transparency, creativity, groundedness, mindfulness, compassion, and an ability to “pause”—all qualities that have potential to enhance the quality of our clinical work.
“The Trauma of Everyday Life”: This consultation group will read and discuss the book: “The Trauma of Everyday Life” by psychiatrist Mark Epstein. In his book, Epstein explores the interface of Buddhist teachings with the practice of psychotherapy, specifically as it relates to working with trauma. The group will also focus on the intersection of person and clinician, especially as they manifest in trauma-informed practice. While not required, an openness to creative, expressive-activity, mindfulness-based, and body-inclusive therapies is encouraged. This is a closed group and will be limited to 6 people. Though the group is on going, a commitment of five months is required for registration.
For more information and/or to schedule an initial conversation, please contact: Jeff Levy, CTRS, LCSW at 773.880.1310, ext. 82
