You will have the opportunity to learn the skills, see them put into practice, ask questions, and even (if you choose) experience the change process yourself.
Here’s what I mean.
You can role play one of your stuck clients that seem to resist your best interventions, and I will demonstrate how to create forward movement.
After demonstrating this process, I’ll discuss what I did and why.
You will be able to feel the shift happening.
I won’t just give you a safe theoretical description of what to do. I put myself on the line to demonstrate what I teach.
If I did not have such conviction and confidence in this approach, I would merely describe what you might try. And we would all hope for the best.
But you get to see it demonstrated.
Better yet, how about experiencing this process for your own personal growth?
For example, you can volunteer to describe something in your life that you want to do or do more of. But you feel stuck.
I will work with you for a handful of minutes, and you will experience a new momentum and positive energy toward a valued goal.
Your personal growth and expertise skyrocket.
This is what makes this training so valuable.
Here are key steps to mastering new skills.
You start with a desire to learn something new. You think about how to apply this knowledge to your own clients – or even to your own life.
Then you observe me – or experience the process yourself if you choose.
And then you use it with some of your stuck clients.
Next reflect about what went well and where it was not smooth.
In our next training session together, you describe your experience of what worked and where you stumbled.
I discuss it with you. Your learning increases.
You return to your clients with increased clarity.
You continue to experiment, get supportive feedback, and refine your new skills.
Congratulations. You just applied key steps to mastering the art of therapy.
And that is how I really accelerated my expertise. I practiced a lot and exceeded 10,000 hours years ago. But only after I practiced the above steps did my skills really take off.
