Without exception, developers and devotees to particular methods claim superiority in conceptualization and outcome of their chosen approach. Meanwhile, governmental bodies, professional organizations, and third party payers are assembling, mandating adherence, and in some instances limiting payment to lists of treatments considered “evidence-based. So, “what works?” The presenter will identify core factors responsible for therapeutic success regardless of theoretical orientation or psychiatric diagnosis. The research on “what works” will be carefully translated into practical, common sense, and empirically supported therapeutic skills that can be used for the efficient and effective resolution of problems clients bring to treatment.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe four evidence-based factors responsible for therapeutic success regardless of preferred theoretical orientation or treatment population.
  2. Describe specific, empirically-supported practices to enhance the contribution of each factor.
  3. Utilize a simple, valid, and reliable method for assessing and enhancing alliance and progress in treatment.
