Learn the essential components of an effective dialogue that is oriented towards rapid change: There is a double bind that the clinician is met with in most treatment situations, which amounts to is the implicit request to ‘change me without changing me’. More than merely being a static diagnostic or initial interview, this stage in therapy, if handled effectively, through the use of precise, discriminating-intervening questions from the outset will initiate meaningful change.
Through a seemingly natural, simple and disarming dialogue, the first session becomes a complete and effective therapy in itself and the dialogue evolves to adapt to each subsequent stage in therapy.
