An integrative training approach with proven effectiveness.
The seminar leader is the conduit of basic psychotherapeutic knowledge. The Learning Psychotherapy Seminar Leader's Manual helps instructors introduce beginners to the concepts and processes that define psychotherapy. With the help of the main text and the Learning Psychotherapy Vignettes videotape, seminar leaders show trainees not only the diversity of useful ideas from psychotherapeutic schools but also those variations that fit their own personalities. The program is well-structured but flexible as seminar leaders are encouraged to adapt them to individual training situations-bring in your own cases and encourage trainees to regularly bring in their current clinical problems. Make psychotherapeutic learning come alive by using the modules as the jumping off point!
