Workshop title

Are you a wounded healer?

Workshop times

Sunday 0900 - 1100

Workshop description

Carl Jung coined the phrase the ‘Wounded Healer’ and explained it in terms of ‘transference’ and ‘counter-transference’.  We have all had patients who’ve had distorted impressions of who we are.  But what about us?  Don’t we have biases that cloud our perceptions? Don’t we feel good about some patients and not so good about others?  Where does that come from? How do our wounds influence our understanding of patients and our ability to get them better?  This is a large subject varying enormously from one practitioner to the next.

Angie and John (definitely wounded) have, over 40 years of practice, made many attempts to understand their own motives as practitioners. They will help you explore whether you have ‘wounds’ that give you greater sensitivity with some patients, but get in the way with others.
