The clinical evidence is unambiguous: Getting the client to actually do something in treatment makes for both a better quality and rate of recovery. Erickson was extremely skillful in developing tasks for his patients and getting them to carry them out. In this presentation, we'll consider some of the ways he was able to do that.

Educational Objectives:

  1. List and describe ways to encourage behavioral activation in clients.
  2. Describe the role of expectancy in influencing clinical outcomes.
