Thanks to a recent study involving hundreds of super shrinks, we now have solid evidence for what distinguishes highly effective therapists. In this course, youll learn in detail the strategies and techniques used by these therapy stars. Youll also find out about an easily replicable system of feedback procedures that you can use to develop a profile of your own most and least effective moments in therapy--what works and what doesnt. Not only will you get a far more exact idea of your own clinical strengths and weaknesses and how to use the findings of this study in your own practices, but youll come away with concrete tools thatll immediately boost your clinical abilities and the power of your interventions.
Scott Miller, Ph.D., is a cofounder of the Institute for the Study of Therapeutic Change, and the author of 7 books, including the Heroic Client: Principles of Client-Directed, Outcome-Informed Clinical Work.
