Join 6 of Psychotherapy's Leaders on the Path to Wisdom

Here’s your chance for a close-up encounter with Mary Pipher, Irvin Yalom, Eugene Gendlin, Tara Brach, Ron Siegel, and Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman. They’ll explore the role of wisdom in clinical practice and they’ll offer practical guidance on how you can cultivate the qualities and practices that foster wisdom in your life. You’ll learn how to:

  • Recognize and call upon the deepest sources of wisdom in you and in your clients.
  • Maintain freshness in your work by recognizing and avoiding the dulling trance of the habitual.
  • Develop everyday practices that nurture your own capacity for compassion, authenticity, and wisdom—both inside and outside the consulting room.
  • Distinguish between different wisdom traditions and their relevance to your life and work.
  • Discover new strategies for attuning to and shifting the habits of mind that can distort your everyday perceptions of other people and the world.
  • Empower yourself to face the Big Picture of the world’s complex problems without flinching or becoming demoralized.

Are you ready to investigate the elusive quality we call wisdom and consider its important role in a fulfilling life and true psychological healing? Sign up right now for our 6-session Webcast series Six Faces of Wisdom: Pathways to Becoming a Better Therapist.

A New Way to Learn: A Note from Rich Simon

Dear Colleague,

As editor of the Psychotherapy Networker for over 30 years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to engage your curiosity, anticipate your questions, and make sure you get answers you can use. I’ve also learned that any subject, if approached in the right way, can be deeply engrossing, understandable, and entertaining.

My goal in each Webcast interview is to zero in on what you need to know to deepen your craft as a therapist. At the same time, the spontaneous, free flow of conversation makes learning far more enjoyable than stodgy workshop lectures and PowerPoint presentations. Our Webcast series are an exciting, new way to stay on the field’s cutting edge.

But enough words—to see what we mean, just click on the video below to watch a preview.

Networker Webcasts offer a lively, close-up learning experience with the field’s leading teachers and innovators. You’ll discover practical approaches and methods you can use in your very next session with a client, without having to leave home or miss a day of work. It’s the best CE deal you’ll find anywhere.
