Jill Levitt and I are recruiting two volunteers to do live work with us in our upcoming workshop on Sunday, May 22. We would like to focus on depression and anxiety, as opposed to a relationship conflict or habit / addiction.
If you are interested, please send Jill and me a brief description of your problem along with a partially completed Daily Mood Log, including the Upsetting Event, then circle and rate emotions in the “% now” column (do NOT fill out the “% Goal” column), and record your Negative Thoughts. We are hoping to make contact with some volunteers as soon as possible.
You can send your materials to: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Jill and I will do our best to select two individuals whose problems appear suitable for this type of public event. We will also select two alternates in case of sickness or last-minute emergencies.
We are hoping to work with mental health professionals who want to do some personal healing. This will be personal work as a part of your therapist training and development, and we will not be engaging in an ongoing therapeutic relationship. If you have feelings or issues still needing work at the end, you will have to do that with your own therapist.
If the sessions are good, we will likely also turn them into Feeling Good Podcasts, which will greatly expand the audience who will listen. In addition, we may be creating a video from this workshop which we would plan to share with the public. Keep that in mind if you volunteer, as the confidentiality you enjoy in a “real” therapeutic relationship will not be possible, and we want to make sure that you, and anyone you might mention in your work, will not be harmed in any way.
The last workshop featuring live work with Michelle and Jillian was tremendously well received, and we believe that this one has great potential as well. The live work is our best form of training, and many seem to experience personal healing as well just by watching.
If you are chosen for live work, you will receive free registration.
We thank you ahead of time if you think you might like to volunteer!
Sincerely, David and Jill
