Scott Miller & K. Anders Ericsson • Friday All Day
In the past two decades, the burgeoning science of expert performance has identified the specific practices that distinguish average performers from those who excel at a range of complex skills and professional disciplines like psychotherapy. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to apply concrete strategies based on this research—including assessing your current baseline, soliciting ongoing feedback, and engaging in deliberate practice—to move to a higher level of effectiveness. You’ll get step-by-step, evidence-based instructions for developing a profile of your most and least effective practices and how to use it to eliminate weak spots and enhance your outcomes. Each specific principle and practice will be illustrated with videos from interviews with top-performing clinicians, as well as examples of clinical work with the most challenging cases. You’ll leave with your own professional development plan and a road map for creating and sustaining a culture of excellence in your practice setting. (This session will continue with Workshop 301.)
