New clinicians consultation group

This group is for new clinicians hoping to better navigate the stresses and challenges of beginning to practice psychotherapy. Through case presentations and group discussions, we will consider such topics as: managing anxiety and developing confidence as a therapist, clarifying one’s theoretical stance and creating a consistent practice, understanding self-disclosure, identity, and boundaries, and learning how to respond to challenging situations. This group is facilitated by Leah Nuetzel, CCA training coordinator, and Carolyn Schneider, who has provided supervision to graduate and post graduate students for over 20 years. Sessions are held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on the 2nd Fridays of the month from October through June. We ask for a three month commitment. Please contact Leah at lnuetzel@cca-cct.com for more information.

This group is facilitated by Blue Roth and Carolyn Schneider who together bring years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families navigating gender exploration and transition.
