COMING UP NEXT:

March 5, 2015: The Inner Life of a Therapist: Impact of Suicide on the therapist (A panel discussion)

The Inner Life of the Therapist series attempts to address issues that can arise in a therapist’s professional and personal life. We are so appreciative of the therapists in our community that graciously come together to create a panel in which they share their thoughts and experiences in hopes of enlightening and equipping the rest of us to live our professional and personal lives with grace and wisdom.

This year our panel discussion will be on the impact of client suicide on the therapist.  We will be exploring the ways in which the therapist can be personally and professionally impacted when a client dies by suicide.  Some of our panelists will share their personal experience with client suicide and others will share their experience working with high risk clients who engage in self-harming behaviors and or experience persistent suicidal ideation.
