Event Details

Professional development is central to lifelong job satisfaction. Traditional approaches (e.g., lectures, clinical experience, even supervision) don’t work. The latest studies show that unlocking one’s potential as a therapist requires “deliberate practice.”  At this two-day intensive, cutting edge research will be translated into highly individualized, step-by-step instructions for improving your clinical performance and effectiveness.   Due to the intensive nature of this training, registration is limited to 35 advanced practitioners. Join this select group of colleagues from around the world for two demanding, yet inspiring days guaranteed to:

  • Raise your effectiveness to the next level;
  • Improve your ability to engage, retain, and help a more diverse clientele;
  • Help you develop and sustain a lifelong, professional development plan.

Through a combination of didactic presentations, analysis of individual outcome data, skill building drills, personalized feedback, and deep reflection, the FIT Professional Development Intensive is designed to enhance your therapeutic skills and effectiveness with the most challenging and difficult clinical scenarios and clients.

The training will be run by ICCE Director, Scott Miller, Ph.D. and Daryl Chow, Ph.D., co-authors of the forthcoming Reach: Pushing Your Clinical Performance to the Next Level. 

The training venue is located alongside the beautiful "Magnificent Mile," near Northwestern University Hospital, atop a tall building, overlooking Lake Michigan, and steps from the best retail therapy and blues bars in Chicago!

Participants receive:

Set of ICCE FIT Training and Treatment Manuals valued at $99 USD
•Certificate of attendance
