Why Therapy Doesn't Work, and What To Do About It

Time: Registration/Continental Breakfast 8:30 am Workshop 9:00-12:00 noon
Location: Villanova University Health Services Room 200

Despite its 500 different schools and approaches, the practice of psychotherapy continues to be an elusive and ambiguous calling even for those of us who have devoted our careers to it. Yet, to be truly effective, therapists need to be crystal clear about their role and about the mechanisms of change. In this workshop, we will debunk a series of clinical myths and explanatory fictions that unnecessarily complicate the therapeutic task. Using case examples and drawing upon concepts from cybernetics and constructivism, we will also discuss principles that clarify, enhance, and simplify the therapeutic mission.

1. Describe five characteristics of the type of “upsets” that motivate clients to seek help.

2. Name and describe the core mechanism of therapeutic change.

3. Define the myth of rational supremacy and explain its clinical significance.

4. Discuss how a “category mistake” influenced the field’s development.

5. Discuss why conversational domains are considered “closed.”
