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.


  • Participants will learn three specific practices employed by highly effective therapists
  • Participants will learn a method for determining the overall success rate of their clinical work/li>
  • Participants will learn a method for identifying cases at risk for dropping out of treatment or experiencing a negative or null outcome
  • Participants will learn a method for identifying and improving areas of weakness in their clinical work
