Effective therapy creates experience that transforms, and rehearsal to reinforce change. Counseling, therapy, or any intervention is always more effective when the session moves beyond talk and into action. Do you dread role-play with clients? Don’t worry, your not alone! Clients dread it too. Do you ever encounter the “20-minute lull” and wish you had a technique that could bring energy back to a session, while increasing client success?
This all day workshop offer 6 hours of approved credit, but more importantly you will leave with real techniques, based in an evidenced-based approach of contextual psychology – that make therapy dynamic and brings to life the changes your clients want to make.
Do you work with clients who have low social skills, or poor problem solving skills? Do you work with anxious clients who are always catastrophizing the future, or oppositional clients that think there is only one way to look at a problem? If you work with adults or teens, couples or individuals, medical or behavioral clients this workshop is for you. MFT’s will love the way these techniques can be integrated into family therapy, and social workers will love the practical value of hands-on experiential approaches.
Dr. Richard Nongard, the author of Contextual Psychology, will demonstrate specific techniques and provide you with take home resources to make your sessions interactive, experiential, interesting and effective.
