Women Treating Children

How does being a woman take shape in the practice of psychotherapy with children? How do our personal experiences and those of our clients situate us in our work?  What are the ways we can make use of ‘normative unconscious’ aspects of experiences to move forward clinically?  How do we follow the child and find comfort and understanding in these unknown places?

Using the long term, intensive treatment of a pre-adolescent child with social, emotional, behavioral  and learning struggles, we’ll explore these and other essential challenges to the relational process.
