Session 5: Transformational Moments: How Master Clinicians Think, Talk, & Listen when Facing Challenging Clinical Tasks
This symposium offers innovative strategies and interviewing techniques for transforming the most problematic clinical challenges encountered in everyday care. The techniques described are applicable to therapists in settings from community mental health centers, college counseling centers, and private practices to emergency departments and inpatient units. Traditionally daunting tasks such as creating hope in the hopeless, gracefully exploring our client's spirituality, exploring incest and domestic violence, unstalling stalled treatment planning, eliciting hidden suicidal ideation, uncovering dangerous psychotic process, performing a sensitive DSM-5 differential diagnosis, and avoiding our own burn-out will be explored. Dr. Shea will utilize a combination of didactics, videos, and the lens of the “human matrix”, a concept that adds consistency, integration, and a sense of direction to transforming challenging clinical conundrums.
