Based on the concept of “different strokes for different folks”, the talk will focus on the 6 general evidence-based factors which can be effectively adapted or tailored to an individual client to enhance outcomes. The factors that will be discussed are: reactance level, culture, client preferences, religion / spirituality, stages of change and client coping style. We will also discuss what factors often believed to make a difference, in fact do not have evidence, including the gender and ethnicity of the therapist. 


Each event will be hosted at Benchmark Psychology.  Numbers are strictly limited, so please REGISTER to confirm availability.
