Fifth Annual Minnesota Adlerian Conference 9/24, 2021 – Hybrid Conference

The 5th Annual Minnesota Adlerian Conference will take place Friday, September 24, 2021. The topic is: Helping Clients Change: You Can’t Pour from an Empty Cup.

This six-hour training addresses issues related to burnout, compassionate fatigue, and vicarious trauma that helping professionals face in their daily life, and especially during the times of mass crises.

·      Participants will identify sources of and significant differences between burnout, compassionate fatigue, and vicarious trauma.

·      Participants will interpret typical scenarios in light of these differences, and will relate personality variables to how burnout, compassionate fatigue, and vicarious trauma are experienced and how these may be impacting their professional practice. 

·     Participants will design their own creative and communally useful wellness plan, based on Adlerian perspective of wellness.

In this training, participants will attend a mini lecture, a life demonstration, a panel discussion with local experts, and small groups experiential exercises.

From: Social Equality: The Challenge of Today, Rudolf Dreikurs, 1971, p. 222.

“The spiritual and moral support we all need in the discouraging tribulations of our daily lives can only come from a group in which we are truly one another’s brothers. We need each other’s help in our efforts to be as good as we want to be, to be as effective as we can. We need each other to remind us of our ideals and to give us persistence in pursuing them. We need each other to stimulate our devotion to the common good, to stir up our willingness to feel with each other, to live with each other, to belong to each other in a long-delayed fulfillment of humanity’s most cherished and ancient dream: the brotherhood of man.”

Trust only movement.
