This short course will teach advanced conceptualization and technique by summarizing it in the language experience of human beings. This means teaching a four-step approach incorporating everyday language, common sense concepts and humor so beginners as well as experienced therapists can learn and apply the skills. This approach is demonstrated by case and video presentation of severely disordered children.
