NP007, Excellence, Session 3, Barry Duncan

 

What is the most important key to improving as a therapist? How can we radically and consistently improve our effectiveness as clinicians? Get the answers to these questions and more in session 3 of The Road to Clinical Excellence with Barry Duncan.

He’ll go over ways in which we can improve as therapists, including what more than 1,000 studies have taught us about the science of the therapeutic alliance. You’ll learn what “healing involvement” is and how to achieve it with any client and how you’ll come away with a much better understanding of why outcome measurement is essential to improvement.

As always, we encourage you to take a few minutes after the session to comment—what was new, or most interesting to you about this session? What questions do you have or relevant experiences to share? And as always, if you ever have any technical questions, just email support@psychnetworker.org!

NP007, Excellence, Session 2, Etienne Wenger

 

How is a community of practice different than solitary learning? You make sure to stay up-to-date with the latest research and training methods by constantly reading and trying to apply what you’ve learned with clients. Etienne Wenger, a noted pioneer in exploring the processes of social learning, will explain why the key learning processes and relationships are starkly different from formal curricula and standard learning methods. He’ll discuss why individual clinicians need the support of communities in order to problem-solve, gain perspective on their practice and their clients, and to truly keep up-to-date with new methods.

We hope you come away from this session with Etienne Wenger with a new perspective and understanding of how communities should play an important role in your therapeutic practice. One way to begin acting upon this new way of thinking is to really engage in the Comment Boards throughout this series. As you’ll see after hearing from Etienne Wenger, there’s a difference between learning and reflecting on what you’ve learned inwardly, and sharing your thoughts and experiences with peers.

Please take just a few minutes to comment on what you found most interesting about the presentation, your experience, and to ask any questions you may have.

NP007, Excellence, Session 1, Scott Miller

 

We all strive to improve at what we do each day, but how do we achieve excellence as therapists? How do we ensure that we consistently succeed in helping clients?

The Road to Clinical Excellence includes six presentations, plus a bonus session, which are sure to change the way you think about clinical mastery. You’ll learn about the most recent research on the topic of excellence, and come away with practical ways that you can use to immediately and dramatically enhance your therapeutic effectiveness.

The first session with Scott Miller, the founder of the International Center for Clinical Excellence, will cover why experience, theoretical orientation, and interpersonal skills actually are not highly correlated with outcome. He’ll discuss ways to drastically enhance your performance and how to reinforce your clinical growth by creating “cultures of excellence.”

Please take a few minutes after each session is over to engage in the Comment Board. Feel free to comment about what you’ve learned in the session, to ask any questions you may have of the presenter or your peers, or to share any relevant experiences.

Welcome to the relaunched series of New Perspectives on Practice: Couples Therapy Today and Tomorrow. This practical, nuts-and-bolts first session with William Doherty, a seasoned couples therapist, will explore the most common mistakes therapists make in treating couples, and will provide strategies for how to avoid making these errors. Doherty will go over the most common obstacles to effective couples therapy, how to best structure couples’ sessions, how not to undermine a couple’s commitment, and much more.

We invite you to use the Comment Boards in the same way, after each session and after completing the course.

We encourage everyone to use the Comment Boards as a forum for reflection, thoughts, and questions. Thanks so much for your participation, and welcome to this extremely relevant and lively series!

P005, Diets, Session 1, Judith Matz

 

Welcome to “Diets and Our Demons,” a 4-week webinar series which will cover a variety of perspectives about helping our clients maintain mental and physical health. This series follows our January/February 2011 issue, which was also called “Diets and Our Demons,” which reported on research and case studies related to different ways of looking at dieting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. If you’re interested, check out that issue here.

In this first session with Judith Matz, the director of the Chicago Center for Overcoming Overeating, she will present some of the research that shows that dieting is actually counterproductive. Matz will discuss why the practices of attuned eating and weight acceptance can offer a more effective substitute to conventional dieting techniques.

After each webinar session, a Comment Board will be provided so that all of you can share reflections on what you’ve learned, or any questions you may have. We believe these forums create a sense of community of learning and help inspire each other. Please take a few moments to comment on what was most interesting or relevant to you, and we encourage you to include your name and hometown with your comments. Thank you for your participation.

If you're interested in additional information, check out Judith Matz's resource page here!
