Becoming a More Effective Therapist: Using Reliable, Personalized Case Formulations

This free event is not sponsored by the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, but is included here as it may be of interest to our constituents.


How is it that therapists of vastly different temperaments, attitudes, therapeutic approaches and styles are able to achieve comparable results? There must be a thread that runs through effective treatment, independent of therapist personality style or therapeutic technique that promotes healing in patients – a thread that explains how and why psychotherapy works or fails to work. In this workshop, participants will learn the fundamental principles and methods of case formulation, guided by the Plan-Formulation Method, that have been developed by the San Francisco Psychotherapy Research Group. The workshop will cover the major theoretical assumptions informing the Plan-Formulation Method, and will outline the process of developing unique formulations for individual patients.
