Workshop Title: (Webinar) The Art of Asking Questions

Workshop Description: So much of our work is in the power of language. Much of that power comes more through the questions we ask, than the statements we make. The art of crafting and timing good questions, so vital to our work is seldom addressed in our basic training and micro-skills classes. This workshop is designed to help entry level therapists learn how to think about, develop and hone this vital skill in therapy.

Workshop Objectives:

  • You will learn the four basic types of questions, their role and impact in therapy.
  • You will learn a simplified overview of how to look at therapy to guide where your questions need to follow the client and lead toward the goal of the session.
  • You will learn a few basic techniques in formulating good questions.
  • You will learn how basic technique is the foundation of creative art.
  • You will learn to avoid common mistakes in asking questions.
  • You will watch some in-session examples of applying the art of questioning.
  • You will learn a little bit about the philosophy and neurology of asking questions.
  • You will learn about the importance of the "state of the questioner" when it comes to asking questions.
