Every therapist, no matter how advanced, will experience moments of struggle with their clients. The problem we face as therapists is not our mistakes or therapeutic errors, it is our inability to turn those moments of struggle or disconnect into breakthroughs in therapy. The regular use of measurement, or routine outcome monitoring, can help therapists tune into their patients' symptoms as well as reactions to therapy and in this way improve clinical outcomes.
In this 2-hour continuing education webinar, Dr. Jill Levitt will explain how measurement can dramatically improve not only therapy outcomes but also the therapeutic relationship and how simple empathy skills will enable you to not only repair but improve your therapy. She will present several ways to easily integrate measurement into your workflow, and many empathy techniques that will help you connect with your most critical clients.
Join this 2-hour webinar to learn how to transform your therapeutic failures into breakthroughs, and learn how your toughest patients can be your greatest teachers. The evidence-based principles taught in this webinar apply not only to those doing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, but to any modality of therapy.
This continuing education webinar is designed to help mental health professionals:
