THE CENTER FOR TRAINING AND WORKSHOPS ON ISSUES OF WOMEN’S THERAPY WITH A FEMINIST PERSPECTIVE
The Center for Training and Workshops has served as a significant cornerstone throughout the years that the Counseling Center for Women has been in operation. It is a professional framework, which works to deepen the familiarity of the professional community in Israel with the feminist approach to therapeutic work with women and with issues that are characteristic of the psychology of women, as well as offering tools with which to implement that approach in the therapy session.
The Center for Training and Workshops provides a response to the various needs of professionals in a variety of fields: women graduate students, mental health professionals, therapists and senior staff members in public services, group facilitators working with therapists working independently, staff members in a multiplicity of professions, welfare workers in branches of municipalities, colleges and universities and government offices as well as professional staff members in social organizations and community centers.
In the same manner, the Center for Training and Workshops specializes in providing training in peer supervision and egalitarian supervision that contributes to broadening knowledge, empowerment and the improvement of working relations among the staff in dealing with clients.
