CPD - Supervision: “The hard ones”

Every babywearing consultant has been to clients who, in one way or the other, were disappointed when we left. Some of them would show or mention it, some of them would just politely say good-bye and leave us with the feeling of something not having gone as well as it should. The workshop aims at looking in detail at a consultation that left us with the impression that we could not live up to our standards and / or expectations. Why was this particular client and / or situation so difficult? What did I not understand at the time? Was it me or the client or both of us?

Claudia gives an introduction to the (psychotherapeutic) concept of transference/countertransference, which is a helpful tool in understanding why communication can go wrong and why we are misperceived by the other, before starting discussing the cases.

For babywearing consultants only. 

Max 8 participants.
