Enriching the Therapeutic Relationship: What You Don't Know Might Help You

Ryan Stivers, PhD, LMFT & Courtney Stivers, PhD, LMFT

Naperville, IL

For those of you who are helping professionals, we know the tremendous value that years of training and experience can bring to the process of change.   If this is true, why do many clients choose to be seen in student clinics with trainee therapists?   The answer is not as simple as one might think.  

Using phenomenological research methods, the Stivers will present the advantages of receiving counseling at a marriage and family therapy training clinic.  This workshop will also provide crucial information to veteran therapists who are interested in exploring the fundamentals of “what really works” with clients.
