Psychotherapy will maximize its effectiveness by targeting the most powerful sources of change: the therapeutic relationship and the patient him/herself. This INTERMEDIATE clinical workshop provides integrative methods for adapting or tailoring treatment to the individual client and his/her singular context. Participants learn to reliably assess and rapidly apply four or more evidence-based methods for constructing the therapy of choice. In this way, practice and research converge on responsiveness that demonstrably decreases dropout rates and improves treatment outcomes.

Learning Objective 1
Determine a client’s treatment and relationship preferences in ways that improve outcomes

Learning Objective 2
Secure real-time client feedback in session regarding therapy progress and relationship satisfaction.

Learning Objective 3
Assess reliably a client’s stage of change within one minute and tailor treatment to that stage.

Learning Objective 4
Employ evidence-based methods to adapt treatment to the patient's nondiagnostic characteristics.
