The Heart and Soul of Change: Delivering What Works in TherapyCE Hours: 6
Course Fee: $59.95
Access: Course is available for 30 days after registration
Open to the Public with Registration
At the root of many controversies in our field is the important question of what works. Is efficacy based on the singular curative powers of specialized techniques or do other variables account for the change occurring in therapy? The answer lies in the common factors--the ingredients of effective therapy, shared by all orientations.
This workshop provides a detailed recipe for enhancing what works based upon the empirically validated guidelines of how change actually happens in therapy. Particular attention will paid to rallying clients and their resources in all their diversity to the cause of change as well as that tried and true but taken for granted old friend, the therapeutic alliance—the client and the alliance are the heart and soul of change. In addition, the now much replicated findings that client-based feedback or practice based evidence substantially increases the effectiveness and efficiency of services—more than anything in the history of our field—will be similarly converted into pragmatic steps to enhance the benefit of any service regardless of the model practiced. Videotaped examples will not only illustrate the known curative factors and their systematic enhancement, but also a transparent process of attaining client feedback that intensifies the power of the alliance and more effectively recruits clients' resources in the service of change.
Among the tools you'll acquire is an easily replicable system of feedback procedures that will give you early warning about potential problems and help you identify what you need to do to enhance your therapeutic impact. Through a transparent process of attaining client feedback, you'll learn ways to deepen the therapeutic conversation, intensify the power of a collaborative alliance, and more effectively recruit clients' own resources in the service of change.
