Based on interviews with the world’s most creative therapists, this workshop explores those dimensions that are most conducive to breakthroughs—not only for changes in the client’s behavior, but also in the therapist. Greater creativity is possible for any professional who is willing to critically examine cherished assumptions and revitalize work in new ways.
