February 5 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$35.00 - $55.00
February 5, 2018
As in medicine, there is both an art and a science to the practice of psychology. A six-person panel (Drs. Jim Dahmann, Gary Schneider, Cori Yaeger and Tom Heitkemper, along with Jack Niehaus and Jason Thompson) will present and discuss case studies which illustrate the bridge between evidence based interventions and the practical clinical application of these, based on these clinicians’ experience with such interventions over years of practice.
Attendees will learn:
- Ways to very quickly obtain valuable information on relationships and on dynamics between couples
- How to deal with couples’ resistance to therapy
- Crisis de-escalation with clients/patients including a focus on how these techniques are used by police
- Ways to quickly get useful data from and establish credibility with patients who are evaluated for medical interventions
