19th Annual Conference
Supershrinks: Learning from the Field's Most Effective Practitioners
Scott D. Miller Ph.D.
Friday, April 12, 2013
Description: Thanks to a number of recent studies, there is now solid empirical evidence for what distinguishes highly effective therapists. In this workshop, participants will learn in detail the qualities and practices that separate the great from the good. Participants will also find out about a system of feedback procedures that can be used to develop a profile of their most and least effective moments in therapy-what works and what doesn't. Not only will attendees get a far more exact idea of their clinical strengths and weaknesses and how to use the findings to improve their own practice, but they will also come away with concrete tools that will immediately boost clinical abilities and effectiveness.
