Problem Solving: the workhorse of therapy, reliable and effective - if you do it right

1 module


Dr William Davies



Of all the clinical skills we try and master, problem-solving is one of the most important. In this module, you'll learn the steps involved in both intuitive and formal problem-solving.  Fundamentally, most patients arrive to see us with a problem which they hope we will help them solve. So while it is wonderful to learn the latest and most advanced therapeutic approaches, nothing may be as effective as having a powerful problem-solving focus, with the skill to match.

This module is part of the exciting Higher Order Therapy series of one hour modules. Each consists of an audio lasting 15-30 minutes, plus an exercise and resources for you to you use and practice with afterwards. The series is so named because it features all the 'higher order' factors that make therapy successful. If you examine the leading therapies they overlap to a fascinating degree, so by studying all the overlapping elements and then 'picking off' the elements that are unique to each particular therapy you achieve an extraordinary power and breadth in your ability to help others. And this is what the Higher Order Therapy series enables you to do. 

If you are an experienced therapist looking at the Higher Order Therapy modules you will quickly be able to see the ones you are proficient at and the ones you maybe need to brush up on, and that's exactly what you can do here. 

Every module in the Higher Order Therapy series is designed to be accessible, relevant and engaging, so encouraging both novice and expert therapists alike to develop exactly those elements they want to.

Finally, don't be misled by the price; you may feel that the low price suggests these are not serious modules whereas in fact they very much are. The APT's purpose is to make the best, most relevant and engaging training accessible to as many mental health professionals as possible.
