FREE Workshop – The Immigrant Therapist’s Experience and Its Impact on Treatment
June 28, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Immigrant Therapist’s Experience and Its Impact on Treatment
Join New Jersey Institute for Training in Psychoanalysis (NJI) faculty and candidates for a Zoom workshop exploring the impact on psychoanalytic treatment of the analyst’s immigration experience. In a workshop that offers 3 CEUs for cultural competence, a panel of seasoned immigrant therapists will share their personal and clinical experiences, looking specifically at how one’s immigration experience impacts the clinical encounter.
Immediately following the workshop, members of the NJI faculty will be present to offer information about psychoanalytic training at NJI and answer any questions from prospective candidates about education at NJI.
We wish we could offer you lunch, but in the context of COVID-19, we invite you to bring your lunch to this Zoom meeting and join together with colleagues for an enlightening workshop and to learn about opportunities for your growth as a clinician.
