The Wounded Healer During a Collective Trauma

Sunday, March 7, 2021, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$70.00 – $85.00

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

Therapists are often taught to hide their vulnerabilities.  We may consider the wounds from our childhoods to be a dangerous liability.  This perspective fosters secrecy, shame and isolation.  Woundedness, the facilitator has come to believe, is a metaphor for our shared humanity.


In this workshop, we will celebrate the depth of compassion and empathy of the wounded healer.   We will also address the risks and responsibilities required to engender trust and healing for our clients, and encourage curiosity about how our emotions and experiences during this unprecedented time informs our work.

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

This workshop will address:
  • The importance of mindfulness, consultation and self-awareness for the wounded healer
  • Understanding the impact of the dynamics of shame on the wounded healer
  • Understanding the unique challenges and impact of collective trauma on the therapist


Fee: $85, includes 3 CEUs (available to LSWs/LCSWs, LPCs/LCPCs, LMFTs, PhDs and PsyDs).  A limited number of partial scholarships are available.
