In 25-27 March 2011, members of Omilos Eksipiretiton (the Servers’ Society) participated in the 5th Annual Counselling Psychology Conference in Keele University, “Intimate Encounters: Reflections on Counselling Practice, Theory and Research”. The responsible of the Society was present at the conference as well.
In this presentation, the basic points of the Society’s teaching, the groups that are taking place and the work of the Society are developed. The two speakers present the way in which they manage to integrate and put into practice the teaching they receive from the Society in their professional practice as psychologists. They suggest and develop ways of self-care to avoid burnout often caused by the daily psychotherapeutic work under demanding conditions such as working in a psychiatric department or in the field of drug addiction.
