Trauma, Relations & Addictions Group
For CAMFT members only
March 7, 2024
5:00-6:30pm MT, 7:00-8:30pm ET
CAMFT Member Only Event
Topic: Clinical Challenges presented in Counselling during COVID-19
Description: COVID presented some real challenges for counselors and clients and we hope to learn from you what questions have bubbled up. From your experiences during COVID we invite you to think about and share what you learned and what questions linger or have erupted about your practice of counseling since the pandemic. Our sense is that counselors are always in positions to see “what could be different” and love to pursue that which they do not understand using their keen spirit of inquiry. Therefore, we would like to spend our time together encouraging you and guiding you to deliberately and explicitly inquire into what you most want and need to know to provide the best possible service to clients.
Facilitators: This session will be facilitated by Sally St. George and Dan Wulff, Professor Emeriti from the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Calgary. They are both experienced family therapists, teachers, supervisors, and researchers and members of CAMFT. Together, they developed an approach to practitioner research called Research As Daily Practice and have led numerous projects merging research and practice to learn more effective ways to help clients.
Members you will find information on how to join this event in the weekly Update closer to the date.
