Format: Live Online Seminar 

What does it really mean to be treatment adherent, what does it mean to our clients, and how do we help them best understand what it means? As much as we often talk about treatment adherence, it seems to have become one of these buzzwords with little application, if any. Put in context, our clients will not only appreciate the significance of adherence to treatment but also will more likely find ways to act accordingly. Let us come together and look at how to best do this, and how to best empower our clients towards moving faster and more efficiently in achieving their goals.
Please join us and master tools to best support our clients around treatment adherence and its ripple effect.

  • Learned to help our patients and clients be adherent to treatment.

  • Increased your tools of talking with patients and clients, by identifying at least one thing you will start doing differently at the end of the seminar, as a result of the Socratic Motivational Practice framework.
