Session 1: Core Tasks of Psychotherapy: What "Expert" Psychotherapists Do
In this advanced workshop, Dr. Meichenbaum will critically examine the controversy between those who advocate for evidence-based manualized interventions versus those who advocate for common factors relationship and outcome-focused interventions. He will propose a third alternative approach based on a model of expertise and on ways to implement the core tasks of psychotherapy. He will provide practical discussion and demonstrations of what works in psychotherapy using videos and a very detailed handout. Participants will have self-assessment checklists to evaluate their level of "expertise".
