"In this training video, Drs. Molyn Leszcz, Clare Pain, and Jon Hunter demonstrate psychotherapy's most essential theories, tools, and strategies that form the core of the therapeutic alliance. Highlighting the therapeutic alliance and various ways to understand a client's relational world, they employ live clinical vignettes as well as rich didactic lessons to explain the structure of a healing context. You'll learn about therapist qualities that can promote the alliance; how to develop an understanding with your clients about relationships that shaped their internal working models, patterns of attachment, and interpersonal pulls; and how to recognize the potential impact of unresolved trauma and learn how and when to ask about it. By watching this video, you will learn how to establish and maintain a therapeutic working alliance with clients; understand the clinical risks and challenges that can lead to negative outcomes; and discover ways to incorporate attachment theory, transference and countertransference, and trauma support into your work. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions." - Supplied by publisher.
"In this interview, Dr. Scott Miller discusses evidenced-based psychotherapy and outcome-informed measures. Miller argues that the therapeutic alliance is one of therapy's most important elements, and that the therapist, not the treatment model, is the determining factor. This means that therapists can learn, grow, and be more effective with their clients by systematically monitoring therapy outcomes, inviting negative feedback, and asking the simple question, "How is this working for you?" Miller warns against manualized systems that require therapists to narrowly work in a particular model, citing research that shows that therapists are the most effective when they are allowed to practice what they believe and are confident in. You will learn ways to adapt Miller's tools to invite client feedback, no matter the modality. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions." - Supplied by publisher.
