Why do we become therapists? Why do we become the kinds of therapists we are? When does our history help us in our work? When does it hinder our relationship with clients? How do we manage the pressures of clinical work (and training!) while attempting to juggle our lives outside the therapy room? What happens when issues in our own personal lives become too much? This workshop with Marie Adams will highlight Marie’s research into the personal lives of forty therapists. There will be an opportunity during the workshop to think about the themes arising from Marie’s research and your own individual history.
