Clinicians strive to do right by their clients but often struggle to implement the recommended evidence-based practices that are outlined in research studies and treatment manuals. A bridge spanning that gap between research and practice will be explored through clinicians’ deeper understanding and use of transdiagnostic therapy practices. In this workshop, attendees will learn how to keep a focus on client engagement while integrating evidence-based practices into their daily clinical work. Strategies to deliver evidence-based treatments in a manner that energizes both clinician and client will be provided.
