Webinar Description

This presentation will provide psycho-education to psychotherapists about the nature and ramifications of societal crisis upon clients they serve, and in particular, the Corona Pandemic. Presenters will include Barry S. Horowitz, LCSW-R and Dr. Norman Blumenthal, Ph.D. Those in attendance will learn concrete methods helping those in crisis through methods such as modeling self-care; providing perspective and increasing interpersonal connection to increase resiliency and maximize healthy coping patterns. Additional emphasis will be placed upon the importance of therapist's awareness of their own signs of burnout and compassion fatigue, which strongly hamper the effectiveness of clinical care for the clients they serve.  The presentation will include opportunities for questions-answer period and it will be presented via teleconference so as to increase availability to greater numbers of therapists while also responding to the important social distancing sensitivities and realities of those partaking in the training.
