Presented by Irving Wollman, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-F
Course: #7932 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
This is Part 2 of a two-part series. Engaging parents and families in the treatment process is critical for successful treatment outcome.

Maximizing Patient/Family Engagement in the Treatment Process: Part 1, presented in partnership with Cincinnati Children's
Presented by Irving Wollman, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-F
Course: #7922 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
This is Part 1 of a two-part series. There is strong evidence to suggest that a patient's/family's level of engagement in the treatment process has a direct impact on outcomes. In their seminal work on patient behavior change, Asay and Lambert (1999) identified the 4 common factors that made psychotherapeutic treatments effective and the degree to which each contributed to a successful outcome. This course will focus on the clinician's ability to maximize those factors as they relate specifically to working with patients who demonstrate communication disorders. (Part 2: Course 7932)
