Integrating Knowledge Into Practice
with Matthew Dahlitz
We All Need Integration
We all know about the pressures of our profession, we tell our colleagues to be mindful of workload, we wonder why friends and colleagues took so long to get some help.
It’s a simple fact that the mental health professions are at a high risk for burnout, vicarious trauma, and other stressors about clients, systems, and money.
I Can Help
After a decade of producing and developing The Neuropsychotherapist and The Science of Psychotherapy I have engaged with, published and brought into our Academy expert contributors from around the world. This has given me a wide ranging, interdisciplinary knowledge that can be of great value to you. The real key is to know how to integrate that knowledge into your professional practice. Together we can “join the dots” in your practice and life in areas like:
- the science of your practice
- integrative practice and approach
- burn out | vicarious trauma
- imposter syndrome
I’m making myself available to anyone in our Science of Psychotherapy community, wherever you are in the world, for online counseling and consultation. I won’t replace your supervisor, but I can be a valuable human resource for you.
How: Online video conferencing using Zoom
We all need support. I look forward to connecting with you online whenever you need.
Joseph LeDoux more, more! great stuff he was on a roll with the reward and pleasure system and I want more of what they first thought and what he now believes.
