Training and Topic Overview
Why do some clients reject new ways of thinking and maintain a high level of distrust with mental health professionals? How can we reach such clients, who often seem unreachable? Two new concepts from evolutionary psychology, Epistemic Trust (ET) and Epistemic Hypervigilance (EH), provide an insightful way of understanding and intervening with difficult clients. In this workshop, Dr. Finn will explain the theory of ET and EH, which asserts that many clients screen out new information from others because in the past this was necessary for their survival. Using this empathic lens, Dr. Finn will then demonstrate how Therapeutic Assessment is uniquely designed to lower EH and build ET, allowing for clients to continue to grow and learn long after a TA is completed.
The workshop will be conducted online in four 3.5-hour sessions, and participants will need an excellent internet connection, as videotapes will be streamed. This training will be useful to psychological assessors and psychotherapists alike. Participants will receive 13 CE credits (pending SPA approval). Translation of this webinar into Spanish will be available for those would need it.
