My Most Transformative Session: An Evening of Storytelling
With Susan Johnson, Martha Manning, David Treadway, Kirsten Lind Seal & David Kessler
This evening of candid storytelling about the intimate moments of therapeutic practice has become such a hit for attendees that we’re bring it back for the third year in a row! 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. Each therapist 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—and leave with a deepened sense of what it means at the core to be a therapist.
Objective: In this event, you’ll explore aspects and implications of the therapy experience that may be applied to clients in your practice.
