Backed by 30 years of research, this workshop provides demonstrably effective methods for adapting the treatment method and the therapy relationship to the patient’s stage of change. You will learn to rapidly assess the stages of change (precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, and maintenance) and then to match processes of change specific to that stage. “Doing the right thing at the right time” is the key to efficient change. This workshop features focused lectures, clinical examples, practice exercises, interactive discussions, and participants’ own case material.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Assess reliably a client’s stage of change within one minute.
  2. Implement evidence based change processes according to the stage of change.
  3. Tailor your therapeutic relationship to the patient’s stage of change.
