Many clients take the first step to see a psychotherapist and do not return after the first session. Why do some many clients disengage so early, when we have so much to offer? One of the key reasons is we are too focused on conducting an Intake instead of finding an engaging way to Give.You want to find ways to deepen the engagement with your clients right from the first session of therapy. The First Kiss is specifically for the discerning psychotherapist who is willing to challenge the status quo of our profession in the way we conduct our first sessions.At the forefront of coaching psychotherapists and agencies in their professional development using principles of deliberate practice, psychologist and trainer Daryl Chow, MA, Ph.D. (Psych) provides compelling and immediately applicable ways to increase your impact with your clients, so as to achieve better outcomes.By following the concepts in this book, you will discover ways to create a lasting impact with your clients right from the first contact, as well as develop a perennial framework to sustain your lifelong development plan.
