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.”


Educational Objectives:

  1. Determine a client’s treatment and relationship preferences in the initial session.
  2. Apply three evidence-based guidelines to determine the relationship of choice for a patient.
  3. Assess reliably a client's stage of change within one minute.
