Madanes will tell the stories of some of her favorite therapies that are memorable because of how challenging they were, or how creative and innovative were the interventions. In these cases, she was either the therapist herself, or the supervisor observing the therapy through a one-way mirror. The audience will be challenged to discover the common thread - the strategy that all these therapies have in common.
