Crafting a Meaningful Experience for Therapy Clients

Presented by Rachel Fleischman, LCSW, REAT on 11-22-2019 at 9 a.m. Pacific (noon Eastern) to 11 a.m. Pacific (2 p.m. Eastern)

The new generation of therapy clients want relief, and they want it now. They are increasingly calling for treatment that is less time-consuming and more goal-oriented. Therapists must continually hone their craft to best meet their clients' needs. Relying on asking clients, "How does that make you feel?" doesn’t cut it. To be effective and craft meaningful therapy experiences for clients, clinicians must keep learning, be forever curious, and believe in themselves and their clients. 

In this 2-hour continuing education web conference, Rachel Fleischman, LCSW will guide clinicians through a process that incorporates:

  • Mindfulness and the mindful practitioner
  • Motion 
  • Connection 
  • Creativity

Rachel will explain how clincians can use these four elements to grow and bring more authenticity and connection into their therapy practice. Rachel will also discuss insights and tools from the fields of positive psychology and expressive therapies.

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

  1. Create deeper safety and trust in the therapeutic relationship.
  2. Design a goal-oriented approach for the first session to elicit insight and relief for clients.
  3. Demonstrate how to use recap and homework to close each session with meaning and clarity for clients. 
  4. Utilize creative approaches, humor, and positive psychology to help clients build internal resources and learn how their “weaknesses” are actually assets.
  5. Practice skills of bringing more of “Self” into the therapeutic alliance.
