CCC #11: What Does the Evidence Really Say About Psychotherapy? 

Guest Speaker: Dr. Giorgio A. Tasca

Often the notion of evidence-based practice in psychotherapy is misinterpreted to mean which therapy brand is better for which condition (spoiler alert: there is no winner). However, the evidence for psychotherapy says much more than that. It points to therapeutic relationship factors, therapist factors, and therapist responsiveness to patient factors that lead to better patient mental health outcomes. These findings have real practice implications.

Please join us Tuesday, September 28th at 7:00 pm for our September Collaborative Care Conference: What Does the Evidence Really Say About Psychotherapy (It’s Not What You Think)?. Guest speaker, Dr. Giorgio A. Tasca, will review some of this research and discuss the practice implications of the research that every therapist should know!

Register in advance before the meeting [PM and OSRP Members Only]:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. This conference will be recorded.
