117 Poetry of the Progress Note

Brad Sachs • Thursday All Day

Brad SachsAs clinicians, we tend to view written documentation of our work as a necessary evil, rather than as a unique opportunity to heighten our awareness and understanding of our patients, ourselves, and the relationship that evolves between us.
This workshop is an invitation to broaden your definition of the progress note by exploring creative strategies for documentation through numerous experiential and compositional exercises involving music and writing.

Discover how to:

  • Use progress notes to sharpen your clinical insights and enhance your creative voice
  • Apply creative strategies to identify transferential and countertransferential themes in your clinical work
  • Experiment with creative musical and writing approaches that can be used in clinical sessions to catalyze a client’s growth and self-awareness

Brad Sachs, PhD, is a family psychologist, musician/composer, and the author of numerous books, including poetry volumes such as In the Desperate Kingdom of Love and Blind Date.
