Is talking the best way to promote change and growth? We don’t tell toddlers how to walk or ask them how they feel about walking. We encourage trial and error experience. As a therapist in training, would lectures have been sufficient or did you need supervised practice? Talk therapy is not always the best therapy. Observe and practice several types of action that can be done in session to promote client learning. Experience how action-packed therapy can increase client engagement, discovery and change.


Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe two benefits of action-packed therapy
  2. Demonstrate one action approach that is likely to enhance client learning
  3. Plan and utilize three actions appropriate to use with current clients
