Assessing Autobiographical Memory in Personality Assessment

November 19, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm UTC-5

November 19, 2016
9:30am – 5:00pm EST
Registration opens at 9:15 am
Approximately 30% of clients in long term insight oriented therapy have serious traumas, molestations, & abuse they have never discussed with their therapists.  We want to help as professionals, but how can we heal what has never been revealed?  You can find out what really brings a client in for therapy in roughly a minute even if the client cannot tell you directly. An Early Memories Procedure (EMP) is ordinarily completed by new clients outside the office, but two pieces of data can commonly tell you exactly what you need to know about why they are coming for help. This workshop will discuss how to use & interpret the EMP using the Comprehensive Early Memories Scoring System-Revised as a foundation.
