Dr. Erickson had the creative ability to utilize what clients brought to therapy. In essence, he created a brand new therapy for each client he saw. He was a master at improvisation, yet his brilliance adhered to certain rules and structure. This workshop will provide opportunities for therapists to learn improvisational skills, to learn assessment, and to choose an intervention strategy to match the client's needs. The format will encourage audience participation in improvising.
