Counter Transference 'Trap' within the Therapeutic Process of Addiction and Mental Health
Date: December 13, 2018
Facilitator: Ian Robertson, MSW., RSW.
This training is suitable for: Experienced front-line workers (nurses, clergy, social workers, residential workers), counselors and psychotherapists who provide services to vulnerable populations.
Description: Historically, the work we do within the addictions and mental health tends to focus more on symptoms rather than causation. Clients who seek out our services from these populations present with a significantly higher prevalence of trauma. The real architect of the intervention for our clients who are trauma implicated is the 'worker'. Our personal wellness, insight and healthy attachment to our clients truly matter in their process of recovery. As clinical workers, who are wanting to be trauma informed, we must reflect on our component of what we bring to the therapeutic experience.  As our clients are triggered and react and re-enact historical trauma within our session, so are we as clinicians. Our history and experiences can be helpful but also can be harmful to the therapeutic work. Our histories, especially when we are not aware, do enter into the work with our clients. Having insight to our counter-transference reactions is critical to a 'do no harm' approach, for the highly vulnerable populations we service. This is Learning Module 1 from Certificate in Addiction Counselling. Individual modules may be taken separately from the certificate program.
