Training Description:
Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP) creates deep, meaningful and healing therapeutic relationships by focusing on the subtle ways clients' daily life problems occur in the therapy session. FAP uses awareness, courage and love (behaviorally defined) in the therapist-client relationship to produce significant change. Yet, you can only take your clients as far as you yourself have gone. In this workshop, we will discuss the five rules of FAP that are simple but profound, and explore how you can bring your best self into the therapy room by facing avoidances, fears, obstacles and challenges that prevent you from flourishing personally and professionally.  This training is for all instructional levels (beginner, intermediate, and advance).  For the Training Objectives and information about  CEs, please click here.
