Presented by Bill O'Hanlon, MS, LMFT on 04-10-2009 at 9 a.m. Pacific to 10:30 a.m. Pacific (1:30 p.m. Eastern)
Possibility Therapy uses the power of acknowledgment to meet people where they are stuck and the power of possibility to invite them into change. Not just a positive approach, this approach recognizes problems, the influence of the past, and cultural, political, and gender influences while creating a respectful, hopeful environment for change.
All are available to GoodTherapy.org members at no additional cost.
