Katie Vernoy, MS, LMFT and Curt Widhalm, MA, MS, LMFT|Teaching Wisdom: Best practices for decision-making to support your clients (1 CE hour)

When therapists are asked “what do I do?!?” by their clients, we can often redirect our clients back and encourage them to make their own decisions. But what if we could provide them with best practices to support their decision-making process? This workshop is designed to help therapists learn more about how people typically make decisions, the cultural differences that can show up in the decision-making process, and best practices to support clients in making informed decisions. 

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe a typical decision-making process including at least 2 culturally distinct decision-making practices. 
  2. Identify at least 3 cognitive biases that frequently impact decision-making.
  3. Implement 2 decision-making best practices with their clients.
