    Utililization and Beyond: What does the concept look like in clinical practice?

    OSCH is honored to welcome Robert Staffin for a day-long training. In this workshop Robert Staffin, PsyD, ABPH shares how he understands, and ways in which he applies, the concept of utilization.

    Through a mixture of didactic and experiential (demonstration, role play and small group training) approaches, participants will develop increased competency in (1) recognizing the multifaceted nature of utilization and the myriad of ways in which dimensions of the clinical encounter can be utilized. (2) How to craft interventions that harness the experiential and internal resources of both the client and clinician so as to make the the clinical encounter more impactful.

    Learning Objectives - Participants will be able to:

    1. Discuss different ways in which the concept of “state” can be used.
    2. Articulate the difference between doing hypnosis and being hypnotic
    3. Describe how aspects of self, others and circumstances are available to be utilized in the service of potentiating the clinical encounter
    4. Design and present interventions that utilize dimensions of the tripartite structure of self, other and circumstances
    5. Formulate ways in which therapeutic messages and interventions can be “gift wrapped” so as to make them more appealing to the client
    6. Discuss 4 ways in which stories can be used in therapy to achieve a strategic intent
    7. Identify and analyze examples within the clinical encounters where aspects of self, other and circumstances are utilized
    8. Describe and discuss different ways in which the verbal and behavioral content inherent in communication can be utilized to potentiate the impact of the clinical encounter
