Self Soothing for the Therapist

Self soothing is a non-trivial task. It is one of the most powerful interventions a clinician can offer. One could say that self-soothing is really the only intervention a therapist can offer to clients to stay out of the system, untangle themselves from and release agendas for clients.

Learning Objectives:

– Explore the therapeutic impact of self-soothing techniques for the psychotherapist to deepen the therapeutic alliance, from modeling to productively using counter-transferance.

– Practice 3 self-soothing therapist interventions in service of client work.

– Invite clients to practice self-soothing.
