Psychotherapy will maximize its effectiveness by targeting the most powerful sources of change: the therapeutic relationship & the patient. This workshop will provide integrative methods for adapting/tailoring psych treatments to individual clients and their singular contexts. Learn to reliably assess and rapidly apply 3 evidence-based means for demonstrably improving outcomes. Discover how research and practice converge in responsiveness that fits both clients and clinicians.
Objectives:At end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- determine a client’s treatment and relationship preferences in ways that improve outcomes
- assess reliably a client’s stage of change within one minute and tailor treatment to that stage
- tailor therapy to a patient’s level of reactance, thereby decrease dropouts
