Principles of Change in Therapy

A two part practical exploration - with case study examples - of the five evidence-backed principles of successful therapy.

Principles of Change in Therapy

Workshop Description:

There is a growing consensus that the proliferation of so many different brand-name therapies is unhelpful to clients and commissioners. Some have gone so far as to call it a professional embarrassment. This workshop will consider a core set of change principles, common to the major theoretical approaches, which provides an evidence-based (and jargon-free) framework for psychological change. Through means of a simple case study, the workshop will present the framework in action, and consider how it can help practitioners, policy makers and the public alike.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Articulate why it is a problem to have so many different competing therapies and how it confuses clients.
  2. Understand and apply an evidence-based set of principles of change to their practice.
  3. Use the principles of change as a framework for organising clinical material, within session and during supervision (as supervisor or supervisee).
