EP13 Invited Address 05 – The Evolution of Psychotherapy: An Oxymoron – Scott Miller, PhD
Moderator: Dan Short, PhD
Since the first “Evolution” conference in 1985, thousands of research studies and how-to books on psychotherapy have been published. Workshops, training programs, and certifications abound. At the same time, the overall effectiveness of psychotherapy has not improved a single percentage point. Meanwhile, practitioners face the most challenging economic practice climate in the field’s history. Incomes are down and fewer people are seeking psychotherapy as a remedy to their problems. In this invited address, Dr. Miller boldly asserts that the field has been looking for results in all the wrong places. After reviewing what does not work, he highlights the latest findings from the field of expertise and expert performance, documenting three evidence-based steps associated with superior performing clinicians. Research shows that using these steps pushes therapists to reach the next level of effectiveness.
List three factors commonly believed to contribute to outcome, that have little or no relationship with effectiveness.
Describe specific economic challenges facing behavioral health practitioners.
Describe three evidence-based steps of top-performing clinicians.

Recently, we have made changes to the way audio files are handled through our store. Previously, audio sales would provide a downloadable MP3. This feature is being phased out and replaced with an audio streaming option. This means you won't have to download or keep track of your MP3 files. You can now stream them directly through a web browser (or the CE21 Mobile app). Audio streaming products can be saved in the CE21 mobile app for offline playback.
Additional Participant CE must be purchased for each additional viewer. These viewers will watch the video with the main registrant, but will have individual access to course handouts and CE certificate. Additional participants will not have the video on their own account. The standard price for this program includes certification for the main viewer.
