For those of us committed to supporting the growth of our clients, how do we do so in a mental health culture that orients less toward development and more toward measurable behavioral outcomes?
Rachel Mickenberg has addressed this conundrum in various therapeutic environments — as lead social worker at a public high school in Brooklyn and in her thriving private practice. In both contexts she makes use of a social therapeutic, performatory approach that supports clients’ development over behavioral adjustment. She will share what she has learned, how she has grown, as well what she continues to find challenging.
Rachel Mickenberg, L.M.S.W. is a social worker and social therapist at The Social Therapy Group. She is a co-founder of the High School for Public Service, an innovative public high school in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, where she also serves as a therapist.
