You will learn how to conceptualize depressed clients, plan treatment based on an individualized conceptualization, establish the therapeutic relationship, instill hope, and use effective cognitive and behavioral strategies to motivate clients to complete homework, modify their maladaptive thinking and behavior, and solve problems on their own.
