NAVIGATING THE ETHICAL LANDSCAPE OF THE AGING THERAPIST
Psychotherapy is a profession that values the wisdom and experience of the older practitioner. We may continue our work into our seventh, eighth, or even ninth decade! For the seasoned therapist who is experiencing physical and developmental changes that come with aging, there are both gifts and losses. The changing landscape of self directly affects our way of being with clients. This workshop will provide an experiential exploration of our awareness of those changes, how they affect our therapeutic relationships, and the ethical issues intertwined in our navigation of those changes.
