Psychotherapy is not what you see on television or hear on the radio. How does psychotherapy provide unique understanding and solutions for personal problems? This talk uses actual (disguised) case material to demonstrate how a psychotherapist analyzes clues to personal problems and discusses them in plain language. He will also discuss protection of privacy, options for confidential psychotherapy, and psychiatric labels.
Dr. Shulman’s nonprofit organization, Volunteers in Psychotherapy, allows anyone to earn no-fee private psychotherapy, in exchange for volunteer work, done privately and independently, at the charity, nonprofit or government agency of the person’s choice. VIP has been providing therapy in greater Hartford for over 18 years, with primarily licensed clinical psychologists through their private offices. For more info: www.CTVIP.org, or Facebook.
