Why Therapy Doesn't Work, and What to Do About It

ID: 5270

Despite its 500 different schools and approaches, the practice of psychotherapy continues to be an elusive and ambiguous calling even for those of us who have devoted our careers to it. Yet, to be truly effective, therapists need to be crystal clear about their role and about the mechanisms of change. In this workshop, we will discuss several guidelines that clarify, enhance, and simplify the therapeutic mission. Drawing upon concepts from cybernetics theory, we will also debunk a series of clinical myths and half-truths that unnecessarily complicate and mystify the therapeutic task. Participants can expect to learn about the two principles essential to therapeutic success and four factors that hinder client progress.
