It's the Relationship That Heals: New Perspectives on "Evidence Based Practice"

OnDemand Webinar (81 minutes)

Helping professionals often get overwhelmed with navigating the latest techniques and evidence-based practices. So many times, what defines an evidence-based practice comes down to how a certain organization, or insurance company, defines it. Irvin Yalom once said that therapy should be "relationship-driven, not theory-driven," and research evidence continues to support that relational elements far outweigh the importance of technical or theoretical elements in effective psychotherapy. In this OnDemand Webinar, new approaches to evidence-based practice will be explored by looking at what research says about relational elements in therapy. The thrust of the program will explore strategies for building, fostering, and maintaining the best possible therapeutic relationships with your clients.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to review the "common factors" of successful therapy.
  • You will be able to discuss how to use technique as a "backseat navigator" to relational dynamics in order to drive therapy in the direction of successful outcome.
  • You will be able to gain an enhanced awareness of yourself and how you interact with clients.
