Therapy is, inherently, a means of influencing a client, mostly verbally. This workshop will illustrate guidelines for making language more precise and effective in order to enhance the therapist's and client's goal of the therapy. Guidelines will be explained didactically, in a composite videotape of a clinical case and in dialogue with participants.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the importance of distinguishing between "the right thing to say" and the "effective thing to say."
  2. To describe how to tailor therapeutic language to the individual client.
