Care Consultation Group - Peer Group in Franklin
My name is Dr. Mario Baum, I am a Licensed Psychologist. I am currently in the process of setting up a peer consultation group (to provide a forum for mental health professionals to meet informally with colleagues to discuss clinical and practice issues in a supportive and confidential setting). I plan on meeting 1-2 times/month in my practice in Franklin/Cool Springs; if you are interested in participating, please send an email to email@example.com with your contact data and your desired times to meet/availability.
Care Consultation Group for NPI Members ONLY
If you are like me, you work in isolation. No one sees your work, good or bad. You can’t talk about your clients to anyone. The burdens you carry from your therapy relationships weigh you down. A colleague consultation group is a place to share your burdens, laugh at the absurd notion that you can rescue your clients and enjoy a good meal and a good time with your colleagues and perhaps learn a thing or two from others about the art of psychotherapy. You are invited to apply to become part of a semi-weekly case consultation group. Six people will be selected from those who apply. You will be asked to commit to attending for three months. To apply, simply send me an email with your email address, phone number, a brief paragraph about yourself and a response to this question: Why would you be interested in becoming a part of this consultation group?
WHEN: Non-NPI Fridays 11:30 – 1:00
WHERE: 115 28th Avenue North, 37203
COST: Cost of lunch order from Newks
