BT10 Workshop 13 - Tailoring the Therapy Relationship to the Individual Client: Evidence-Based Practices - John C. Norcross, PhD
Psychotherapy will maximize its effectiveness by targeting the most powerful sources of change: the therapeutic relationship and the patient him/herself. This workshop will provide demonstrably effective methods to tailor therapy relationships to individual patients. You will learn to reliably assess and rapidly apply 4 evidence-based methods (patient preferences, stages of change, reactance level, real-time feedback) for constructing the “relationship of choice.”
What about you – the therapist? Conducting brief treatment places additional and special burdens on the person of the therapist. This workshop puts the Socratic dicta of “know thyself” and “heal thyself” into practice. We shall focus on 12 selfcare strategies that are clinician-recommended, research-based, and practitioner-tested. Come join us for focused lectures, copious handouts, group demonstrations, thought experiments, and interactive discussions.
