As part of Menninger's ongoing series of free webinars for mental health professionals, Lindsey Hogan, PhD, will present "Creating and Maintaining Safe Spaces with Self-destructive Clients" Tuesday, May 5, at 12:30 EDT.
During the webinar, Dr. Hogan will discuss some key practical and clinical aspects of working effectively with this clinical population, with an emphasis on treatment frame and therapist stance; empathic understanding of self-destructive feelings and their meaning in the therapeutic dyad; and thoughtful attention to countertransference reactions. Consultation and team approaches will also be discussed as ways to help protect against burnout and enactments.
Dr. Hogan is a staff psychologist on Menninger's Compass Program for Young Adults. She is also an assistant professor in the Menninger Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences as Baylor College of Medicine.
