Join Our Friends at EHNW in Portland for a Fall Student Salon!

Student Salon: I don't know is the only thing I can know: Tolerating ambiguity and holding our theories lightly in therapy.

How do you know what you know? How certain are you of your knowledge, your approach, your treatment plan? If these questions unsettle, hooray! Therapy unsettles us. Experienced and wise therapists are fallibilists, recognizing that our understanding of anything or anyone is only a perspective within a horizon limited by our own experience. HOLD YOUR THEORY LIGHTLY.

This perspective keeps us flexible and open to multiple, emerging and expanding horizons of meaning. This also means we live and work with uncertainty and NOT KNOWING in our clinical work. This salon will focus on how our clinical skepticism can increase our humanism in our work.
Facilitators: Carol Swanson will be co-facilitating the conversation with Bob Edelstein.
