Seeding is a general approach for preparing ground for interventions. Using anecdotes is a powerful tool to use in setting the stage for delivering complex interventions. This workshop will give examples of setting the stage for a variety of symptoms and for techniques like ordeals and homework assignments.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list five techniques for creating hope and positive expectations.
  2. To name three therapeutic interventions which are more effective if they are prepared/seeded by anecdotes.
