When Patient and Therapist Needs Collide: Clinical Dilemmas in the Time of Covid
Description of the Workshop
Presenter: Dr. Madeline Hirschfeld
This workshop focuses on the unique clinical dilemmas that clinicians are facing as we attempt to meet our patients needs for continuity and connection, while still protecting our own needs for safety and/or privacy. Ways to manage the challenges to the therapeutic relationship and the frame of treatment that have arisen during the pandemic will be discussed. Clinical examples will be shared.
Goal of the Workshop
The goal of this workshop is to explore the unique challenges of meeting our patients’ needs for feeling seen, contained, and understood during a time when health-related fears infuse our work and push our own needs into the forefront. Learning ways to understand and manage this potential collision of therapist and patient needs will be a focus of this colloquium.
This colloquium will be held via Zoom on February 2, 2022 from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm. Dr. Madeline Hirschfeld will be presenting via Zoom from her home in Del Ray Beach, Florida.
Goals of the Colloquium
At the completion of the colloquium:
- Participants will be able to identify ways in which the pandemic has influenced their needs as a clinician
- Participants will be able to identify ways in which the pandemic as intensified or changed patient needs in treatment
- Participants will be able to identify ways in which both patient needs and therapist needs have or may collide and how this might affect the treatment
- Participants will identify ways to manage changes in the frame of the treatment, as a result of the intersection of patient and therapist needs during the pandemic
