Inspired healing rests on a foundation of skillful assessment. Tailoring the treatment to meet the needs of the client is the cornerstone of Ericksonian therapy. Equally important is the readiness of the therapist to be flexible and change the direction of therapy whenever indicated. Skillful assessment provides the knowledge that makes this type of therapy possible. When a clinician knows how to uncover information vital to understanding a client, then opportunities for healing are better recognized.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To define the role of assessment within the context of brief therapy and elaborate on its practical functions.
  2. To describe five methods of collecting information which has high relevancy to treatment planning.
