The couseling methods that I wish I would have had in 1968!!! Being able to communicate with parents, the patient or significant others is so paramount for successful therapy outcomes. I had to learn this mostly by the seat of my pants and 30 years of practice. Videos also reflected the clients' or parents distress, lack of understanding, and the sence of being overwhelmed. I can't count the number of times when parents came into my therapy room for meetings and yesed me fakig understanding. wonderful syllabus. I will use the presenters e-mail! Bravo!!!
