I am new to training via telephone sessions. How effective is it?
Use of the telephone medium in our training program is based on our extensive, successful experience with it both for therapy and for training. We predict you will be happily surprised by the consistent richness of experience and learning that takes place, undiminished by the absence of visual cues. In fact, working without the visual channel is actually conducive to deeper experiential work, as when clients close their eyes for experiential work during in-person sessions. Recent research has shown that therapy by phone is usually as effective as in-person therapy, as measured by several outcome markers. A recent study found that of clients who had experienced both in-person and phone therapy, significantly more than half preferred therapy by phone. The convenience of participating comfortably from the privacy of your home, office or car is also a big advantage.
How do telephone conference calls work?
We provide you with clear, simple instructions after you enroll for your first Individual or Dyad Practicum. It's as easy as your ordinary everyday use of the telephone.
