    WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND DON MEICHENBAUM'S WORKSHOP

     

     "I'm writing to express my deep appreciation for your work, style, and influence, I have all of your books and frequently cite your articles. I am a sponge when it comes to your interventions and overall approach to therapy.

    Please let me tell you how I have made a gift of your work to others. I own a large private practice. I have 90 therapists and interns working with me and we see thousands of clients every year. After I attended your workshop, I was so motivated that I decided to implement your model into the daily work we do with clients. I have been teaching your philosophy, using your handouts and books. I changed the way we keep our progress notes to reflect your Case Conceptualization Model and now require every therapist to complete a Case Conceptualization form for each case.

    As a therapist, I want to comment on how much I appreciate the ease of using the online version of your Roadmap to resilience book (roadmaptoresilience.wordpress.com).   It's so user friendly.  I am able to go to the fitness areas and ask what area my patient  might like to discuss.  Equally, it is possible to go to the Appendices and take a look at the checklists or the topics and move forward from there.  It is really brilliantly done.  My client has said that he really likes working with Roadmap to Resilience and after having the opportunity to explore the online book in greater depth I'm certain I will use it with other clients.  

    It is a very generous gift for you to have shared your book in this way at this time.  I thank you very much.  

    ( NOTE: The FREE  Roadmap to resilience website in the first month has had 15,000 visitors from 103 countries worldwide ).
