Almost all of us clinicians agree that consultation helps us to be better at our jobs. Committing to the consultation can be another story. In this episode, Dr. Andrew Sherril of the Emory University Prolonged Exposure Consultant Training Program shares some actionable intel on facing, and overcoming, five common barriers to committing to consultation.
Join us as we discuss the interplay of common factors and EBP protocols, how they are not mutually exclusive, and how to make sure you are attending most to the real person and the real relationship with you in the room while applying EBP techniques.
