The event will start at 11:30 a.m. and a complimentary lunch will be served. Registration for the event is available online at http://www.solidlandings.com/events/LAevent.
The workshop entitled, “Working as a Therapist with Success and Failure in the Entertainment Industry,” will focus on the challenges that therapists face when helping individuals stay balanced and focused while pursuing careers in the entertainment industry. The lecture will examine how to stay grounded in an exciting and volatile business, as well as the meaning of success and failure and rejection and acceptance, as it relates to creative people such as screenwriters, actors, and others. The lecture will touch on the aspects of the industry that make its participants vulnerable to addiction, anxiety, and depression.
Shayne Vitemb, MFT, a licensed marriage and family therapist will present the workshop; she treats individuals, couples, and groups at her private practice and specializes in treating actors, writers, and other creative people, as well as other professionals in the entertainment field, such as lawyers, agents, and accountants.
