Learn how to integrate systems thinking into your individual psychotherapy practice

Program content description: 


All cases are systemic! We do not exist in vacuums and for far too long, the field of psychology has emphasized the individual as the source of symptoms and the solution to healing. Incorporating systems work in your clinical practice helps to create a context-based framework which allows for long-lasting symptom change and treatment. This workshop demonstrates how to invite others into the room for our clients and help break cycles of dysfunction.

Learn to use Systems Thinking for Effective Treatment

Integrating systems thinking into therapy enhances a clinician's ability to discern complex connections and root causes. This holistic perspective empowers therapists to identify lasting solutions that yield profound impacts within the client's framework, resulting in better and more effective therapy.
