Achieving Clinical Excellence: Three Steps to Superior Performance
Thanks to a number of recent studies, there is now solid empirical evidence for what distinguishes highly effective from average therapists. In this workshop, participants will learn three specific strategies that separate the great from the good. Participants will also learn a simple method for measuring success rates that can be used to develop a profile of their most and least effective moments in therapy—what works and what doesn’t. Not only will attendees get a far more exact idea of their clinical strengths and weaknesses and how to use the findings in to improve their own practice, but they will also come away with concrete tools that will immediately boost clinical abilities and effectiveness.
