Examine the reasons why you chose to work in this field. They can be a “double-edged sword”- by being both the very things that make us excellent at your work and that can also cause our burn-out. Explore how our own “stuff” impacts our work with system-involved youth and their families and, if you are a supervisor, how to support those you supervise with all of this. In this training, we will discuss self-disclosure, explore ourselves and countertransference, identify how we know when we are over-involved, and review ways to address this.
