Maximising Therapeutic Effetctiveness: Transforming your clinical work with complex clients
An event for psychologists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, mental health professionals and trainees
"How can we refine our skills and develop our full capacity as healers, so that we can have a better chance of helping our patients? Six factors are associated with brain change in adults: (1) focus and repetition, (2) creating and maintaining a collaborative alliance, (3) inducing moderate levels of anxiety, (4) facilitating multiple levels of emotional activation, (5) creating "profound moments of meeting" and (6) developing a coherent life narrative."
