28th November 2017 The Therapeutic Relationship: Translating the Research into Evidence-based Skills for Improving Engagement and Outcome
Endorsed CPD: One Day Workshop

For today’s practitioner, finding reliable information about “what works” in therapy—separating fact from fiction—can be challenging. Since the 1960’s, the number of treatment approaches has exploded, going from 60 to over 400 at last count. During the same time period, over 10,000 books and 100,000 articles and research reports have been published. Without exception, developers and devotees to particular methods claim superiority in conceptualisation and outcome of their chosen approach. Meanwhile, governmental bodies, professional organisations, and third party payers are assembling, mandating adherence, and in some instances limiting payment to lists of treatments considered “evidence-based.”
