Self as Movements of Care Liz Barragato, LMHC April 29, 2018
Respondents: Sharon Harrington-Hope, LMHC & Jason Jones, MD
A few words from Liz about this talk:
Some of us at NECET have been exploring the problematic nature of using the term “Self” and the simultaneous need to teach an existential and phenomenological use of self, or of self as instrument. I will be working with these issues from an existential lens, with particular attention to the process of therapeutic movement. To do so, I will focus on a case. In my work with this client, we have engaged in a parallel process, in which my caretaking of the space between my client and myself in the counseling relationship supports my client in developing her own space for becoming. In this way, I use my self in movements of care.
