Special Encore Presentation: Experiencing Functional Analytic Psychotherapy

April 16, 2013
Hosted by Mary Waldon, LCSW

[Download MP3] [itunes] [Bookmark Episode]

Episode Description

Currently, the most talked about psychotherapies are known as third wave or third generation behavior therapies. Many of these therapies are evidence-based, with randomized trials to support their efficacy. Research findings aside, there is a perception that behavior-based therapies can be overly mechanistic and dehumaninzing. This is a criticism that has no basis in regard to Functional Analytic Psychotherapy. Instead, FAP helps client and clinician develop a connection that serves as a model for the client to re-create closeness in relationships outside of session. Tune in to The Mary Waldon Show to learn more about Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP) directly from Dr. Mavis Tsai, co-developer of this treatment. Dr. Tsai leads an experiential hour you do not want to miss!
