126 Wisdom for New Therapists

Jay Lappin • Thursday All Day
LOcation: roberts pdr room

Jay LappinWhat do new therapists need to know to develop their craft? In this workshop, you’ll get practical advice about a range of difficult therapy situations, as well as an opportunity to explore the emotional issues that new therapists often grapple with. You’ll leave with a fuller sense of your strengths as a therapist and how you can continue to expand and deepen your skills.

We’ll pose and answer a broad range of everyday practice questions, including:

  • What are the most common ways beginning therapists get stuck and what can I do about them?
  • How can I handle persistent conflicts in sessions, intense expressions of emotion, and challenges to my authority?
  • How can I develop my own unique style as a therapist that goes beyond merely imitating other models?

Jay Lappin, MSW, LCSW, the family therapy director at CENTRA pc and an approved supervisor for AAMFT, is an adjunct faculty member at Drexel and the University of Pennsylvania.
