Life-Success Therapeutic Interventions: Clinically Equipping People for Success and Satisfaction

Presented by Carol Francis, PsyD on 03-01-2013 at 9 a.m. Pacific

To remain relevant in this modern, quick-changing western society, professional psychotherapists need to also master therapeutic techniques which develop and ignite the ability of a person in therapy to be successful.

Success in our society is often defined as being able to:

  • Create happy, vibrant, and rewarding relationships
  • Attain and maintain work in ways that supports financial fluidity (following financial security)
  • Sculpture healthy, active bodies
  • Discover, create, and evolve a path that feels existentially meaningful-perhaps spiritual, purposeful, or worthwhile

“Living life to the fullest” is the new normative and socialized goal which this new era of people in therapy seek more often than merely symptom relief or cures from trauma. Psychotherapists thus need to embrace different perspectives and utilize old tools, modify “popular culture” tools, and create new tools to facilitate this search for being fully satisfied with self and life.



This web conference is intermediate instructional level and designed to help clinicians:

  1. Differentiate the perspectives, goals, tools, and limits of medical models, pathology-models, interpersonal-models, developmental-models, neuropsychological and psychobiological models, and successful life-oriented models;
  2. Delineate details and personality-profiles associated with the current client population which seeks successful-life-oriented treatment as associated to sociology, economics, psychosocial historical shifts, self-help industry and coaching industry, pathology, and health of society;
  3. Apply traditional psychotherapeutic techniques which can be modified to focus on a Success-Oriented model;
  4. Utilize newer clinical psychotherapies oriented to success and satisfaction models.
