Do you ever feel like your knowledge of psychotherapy theory and clinical skills outpaces your ability to actually work with real clients? If so, you are not alone! In my clinical training, I frequently noticed that, while I was learning a lot about theory, I wasn't able to actually use the theory with many clients. Despite having great supervisors, I repeatedly found myself stuck with certain cases. (Particularly cases that sparked my countertransference.) Over time, I noticed that I had psychological/emotional blocks that were creating a "clinical glass ceiling" that limited my clinical effectiveness. Drawing from the pioneering work of Jon Frederickson, Scott Miller, and others, I've developed a method for using Deliberate Practice to develop the psychological/emotional capacity of the therapist, so we can more fully use the theory we have learned.

This webinar is based on the book Deliberate Practice for Psychotherapists and the edited volume The Cycle of Excellence: Using Deliberate Practice to Improve Supervision and Training (Edited by Tony Rousmaniere, Rod Goodyear, Scott Miller, & Bruce Wampold; Wiley Publishers).  

Feedback from previous students:
"The depth of learning was truly remarkable in part due to the focus on developing our individual practice between sessions. Tony's warmth and thoughtfulness guided each of us on a unique journey, allowing us to bear the reality of our struggle with and yearning for learning and development. Personally, this course has enabled me to become more effective and authentic as a clinician, it has been a wonderful gift to myself and my clients!"

"I'd expected a dry class, focusing on behavioral aspects of implementing deliberate practice. Instead, I found an inroad to the unconscious. Thank you for introducing us to a process that builds capacity. You were a great teacher, freely talking about your experiences, which helped create a safe group."

"The support to put our self criticism to one side was fabulous. It was a remarkable opportunity to do this without it getting too deeply personal. The experience was personal and quite profound at times. It was warm and connected, therapeutic and enabling change, but was not therapy."
