My Most Unforgettable Session: An Evening of Storytelling
Daniel Siegel, Michele Weiner-Davis, Kenneth Hardy, Lynn Lyons, Lisa Ferentz
Last year we tried an experiment: a candid storytelling event that illuminated what really makes us tick as psychotherapists. It was such a Symposium highlight that we’re bringing it back! Join five Master Therapists as they invite you into an evening of deep listening and authentic experience. As in the acclaimed first-person storytelling program The Moth, each therapist will recount a deeply felt, real-life experience that will inspire, provoke, and enchant. The more you listen, the more you’ll feel like you’re huddled around a campfire exchanging stories and sharing insights in an experience of communal discovery. Storytellers will reveal a tale from the heart about a session, a client, or a therapeutic moment that stands out from all the others because it was . . . the most touching? Surprising? Humbling? Explosive? Hilarious? Come and find out! You’ll leave with a deepened sense of what it means at the core to be a therapist.
Approved for 1 CE hour if you register for this event.
Learning Objective: You’ll explore the various dimensions of the therapy experience that make certain sessions standout for therapists.
