Learn how the non-verbal interplay deepens the therapeutic alliance

Learning to listen is a skill we learn in graduate school, but how many clinicians are taught to listen with their eyes? Or listen with their feelings? Or listen within the transference? Learn how the non-verbal interplay between patient and therapist appears to deepen the power of the spoken word. In this workshop, you’ll watch video excerpts from live psychotherapy sessions and receive research tools you can use in your own practice. You’ll learn how to explore non-verbal interplay to gain additional information and meaning to make informed interventions with your clients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to search for para-verbal clues that underly the psychotherapy interchange
  • Learn how to include non-verbal observations and interventions into your work
  • Learn how to evaluate whether non-verbal interplay has increased the effectiveness of their treatment
  • Learn how research tools can improve your clinical skills

Learning Methods:

    • Video-segments of psychotherapy sessions
    • Interactive exercises
    • PowerPoint presentation
    • Achievement of Therapeutic Objectives Rating Scale
    • Achievement of Therapeutic Objectives-Therapist Rating Scale
