The International Center for Clinical Excellence is pleased to announce the annual Train the Trainers conference to be held in Chicago, Illinois (USA) from August 6th through August 10th, 2012. As the title of the event implies, emphasis will be placed on preparing participants to provide training, consultation, and supervision to therapists, agencies, and healthcare systems in the United States and abroad. This intensive, hands-on training also represents the first step for those interested in becoming a recognized trainer in the Client Directed, Outcome Informed approach and an "Associate" of the ICCE.
State of the Art faculty include, ICCE Director, Scott D. Miller, Ph.D., ICCE Associate and Training Coordinator Julie Tilsen Ph.D. and special guest ICCE Senior Associate and Director of Professional Development, Cynthia Maeschalck, MA, CCC. Through a combination of didactic presentations, skill building exercises, and feedback, participants will learn:
Step by step instructions for training clinicians in Client Directed Outcome Informed (CDOI) / Feedback Improved Therapy (FIT).
How to use CDOI in supervision.
Methods and practices for dealing with and overcoming individual and agency inertia.
Tips for top training sessions, learning and mastery exercises, and transformational presentations.
