Treating Patients with Specific Clinical Disorders: A Strengths-based Constructive Narrative Treatment Approach

10.00 CE Hours Available

This course addresses ways of implementing the core tasks of psychotherapy that “expert” therapists use to achieve better treatment outcomes. These interventions incorporate basic trans-theoretical approaches.
Dr. Meichenbaum describes how to treat a range of diverse clinical populations, including patients experiencing PTSD, substance abuse, anxiety, depressive disorders, prolonged and complicated grief, suicidality, and anger control problems. He also discusses how to use several constructive narrative treatment approaches, including ways to integrate spirituality into clinical practice.
These approaches will help your patients achieve long lasting behavior changes. The course includes practical to-do tasks for you to practice and specific feedback for you to solicit from your patients to increase your level of expertise.
