Workshop Description:
Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP) is a "here and now" therapy that focuses on the subtle ways clients' daily life problems occur in the therapy session. Based on behavioral functional analysis and a contextual world view, FAP implements awareness, courage, and love in the therapist-client relationship to create deep, meaningful and healing interactions. This approach can be applied to a wide range of clinical problems, including: depression, anxiety, intimacy difficulties, personality disorders, problems of the self, substance abuse, and OCD.

All FAP interventions are informed by clearly stated behavioral principles. FAP embraces a wide range of therapeutic stances and techniques, and is intended to help answer the perennial and elusive key question: "What is the theoretically sound basis for selecting the technique that is most appropriate for a particular client at a certain time?"

Considered one of the new generation innovative Cognitive Behavior Therapies identified as "Third Wave", FAP is integrative, and provides a conceptual and practical framework that will help super-charge your next therapy session. The workshop will include videotaped therapy sessions, experiential exercises, demonstrations and handouts that can be used with clients.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn five strategies to increase connection and intensity in your therapeutic interventions and to facilitate client change.
2. Learn how commonly used interventions can be inadvertently counter-therapeutic.
3. Learn how to best use yourself as an instrument of change.

Target Audience: Beginner & Intermediate.
