For Clinicians:
Training Opportunities at Lakeview Center for Psychotherapy

Our clinical work often stirs up strong feelings and presents difficult challenges, which means it's important for us to have a place where we can explore these issues.  Because the practice of psychotherapy is fairly solitary work, it is helpful for us to have a regular dose of support and perspective in a safe community of clinicians.  Consultation and training groups provide opportunities to share information and experiences, and plug us into a supportive environment that helps us meet the challenges of our work. 

CEUs available for all groups 
Workshop:  Meditation and Somatic Practices for Therapists
December 9, 2016      9 a.m. - 12 p.m. 
Contact:  Kate Fiello, LCSW at 773-525-3322

This workshop will introduce sitting and walking meditation along with somatic practices. We will explore sensation, breath, movement and voice as pathways to a deeper experience of embodiment. Carving out time for ourselves to connect, ground and restore is essential in our work as therapists. It can increase our sense of comfort in our own bodies and enhance our sense of presence and aliveness.
This is an introductory workshop to be followed by a six-week series starting in January.

Training Group for Clinicians Interested in Group Dynamics
1-2 Tuesdays/month 12 - 1:30 p.m. 
Contact:  Britt Raphling, LCPC, CGP at 773-506-4463 

This experiential training uses the power of group to support discussions of cases and other professional issues. Here-and-now processing from a psychodynamic group therapy perspective will enhance how we respond to and learn from each others' experiences and further develop our professional egos. This training is appropriate for therapists who treat individuals and couples as well as those who lead process groups, because group consultation helps us to examine more directly the interpersonal dynamics stimulated in our work with clients.  
If you have a group practice currently or are thinking of starting a process group, this training will be helpful, although a group practice is not required to join.  Both newer and seasoned clinicians are welcome.

Consultation Group with a Focus on Trauma Work
1st Thursday of each month 10 - 11:30 a.m.  
Contact:  Leigh Rocklin, LCPC, MEd at 773-506-4462 

This consultation group will focus on the treatment of trauma, as well as other diagnoses, from a psychodynamic, relational and body-centered framework.  We will explore the use of mindfulness both by the therapist, in order to be present in the clinical space, and for the client, to help manage symptoms.  Discussions will include teachings and short readings to enhance learning.  In addition to focusing on clinical technique and musings we will explore the art of knowing ourselves as therapists and how that impacts the clinical relationship.
