Overview: Psychotherapy is a treatment method and a healing relationship fit to the individual patient; however, only in the past two decades has sufficient research been conducted to operationalize these noble intentions into robust matching guidelines. This webinar will review the meta-analytic research and clinical practices compiled by an interdivisional APA task force on 7 effective means of adapting psychotherapy to patient transdiagnostic features. In this way, practice and research converge in responsiveness that demonstrably improves treatment outcomes.

 

Learning Objectives:

1) Identify at least 3 methods of adapting psychotherapy that enhance treatment outcomes

2) Describe evidence-based methods to tailor treatment to the patient’s transdiagnostic Characteristics
