Most therapists receive little to no training on touch as a clinical intervention. Moreover, clinicians are poorly informed about the current research related to touch in therapy. In this 20-hour training, you will get up-to-date information on ethics, research, indications and contraindications related to psychotherapeutic touch. You will learn how to discuss touch with your clients and how to avoid potential lawsuits. You will also have an opportunity to explore how your own culture and experience shades your beliefs of and comfort with the use of touch within the psychotherapeutic container. In addition, you will learn the in’s and outs of clinically documenting psychotherapeutic touch interventions. This training is equally didactic and experiential.
This workshop is open to licensed mental health clinicians (professional counselors, social workers, marriage family therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, etc.) and those on licensure tracks (e.g. students of psychology). In some special circumstances, nonlicensed or licensure track professionals may be invited to participate. For further questions, please contact sabrina by the phone number or email listed on this site. More information will be provided as details are determined.
