3 CE Hours. Teaching our clients effective stress management techniques is limited if we are unable to explain the material in a meaningful way. This workshop explores how to translate theory and evidence into understandable language and practice, with the aim to improve client follow-through and outcomes. You’ll develop tools to explain and teach stress management in understandable ways to clients of all ages and intellectual functioning.
