Whether the client returns for a second appointment depends on the strength of connection made during the earliest moments of therapy. In this workshop, you’ll learn to recognize subtle clues that reveal how a client needs to be treated in order to feel comfortable, understood, and satisfied. This is how therapy is individualized and how to reach clients at their deepest area of need. Participants will also receive an instrument that indicates clients’ most and least helpful therapy experiences.


Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe social domains that serve as decision points for building rapid emotional connection with clientele of various backgrounds and personalities.
  2. Describe three ways to repair the relationship if there is a rupture.
  3. To provide an instrument for collecting feedback after every session that surveys satisfaction while also describing what was most difficult or helpful for the client.
