Live therapy demonstrations with audience volunteers have always been one my most illuminating and helpful teaching tools. You get to see, in real time, what works, and what doesn’t work, and why. In addition, when you see rapid changes in the person I am working with, you will gain a far deeper appreciation of how therapy actually works, and what genuine recovery means.

In this workshop, you will have the unique opportunity to go behind closed doors and see how TEAM-CBT actually works with someone who is struggling with feelings of insecurity and self-doubt. When you witness the rapid transformation of feelings of sadness and anxiety into feelings of joy, relief, and enlightenment, you will feel much better about your own flaws, and you will discover some awesome new tools that can improve your clinical outcomes. This promises to be an exciting, educational and inspirational experience!

It may be a little scary for all of us, because I will be working with someone I don’t know, live and in real time! No role-playing here! At the same time, the learning potential will be considerable.

Approximately two hours will be devoted to the actual therapy demonstration, including teaching points as the session evolves, and approximately two hours will be devoted to the discussion and exercises following the demonstration to help you master key techniques that can greatly improve your clinical work as well as your own feelings of self-esteem.
