Do you feel stuck, frustrated or even discouraged with your current treatment approach?

Your client may be feeling the same way – resistant, unsatisfied and struggling not to relapse.

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • PTSD
  • Substance abuse
  • Personality disorders

Join Richard Sears, Psy.D., MBA, ABPP, for this experiential workshop, giving you the tools and strategies you need to apply CBT and Mindfulness to your practice. You’ll learn simple and advanced techniques, customizable for individual client needs.

Finally, you and your client can move forward in therapy, avoid relapse and find satisfaction in treatment.
