It is not that difficult to produce change within a session, but a far greater challenge to ensure that these changes are lasting. In this conversation, Robert Dilts and Stephen Gilligan will each identify the key dimensions of sustainable change, then open a conversation about how to generatively apply them.


Educational Objectives:

  1. To identify the key dimensions of generative change
  2. To illustrate different ways these dimensions are skillfully applied
  3. To describe how these dimensions can be used in pre- and post-session assessments, as well as in-session applications
