Madeleine Cocozza lectures on the professional platform

How do you design your professional platform so that it becomes professional and sustainable over time?

The lecture provides reflection tools that make it easier for both established and young professionals to build a sustainable platform. It is aimed at licensed psychotherapists, social workers, counselors, and practitioners in both healthcare and social services. During the lecture, both individuals and entire workgroups are provided with tools to reflect on their own design as well as workplace policy.
