#13. Therapy Tip of the Week: 5 Basic Needs
In this series on Therapy Tip of the Week, we'll provide psychologists, counsellors and psychotherapists one practical tip in each episode. My idea of giving you this is not so much as to prescribe to you what you should be doing, but to describe possibilities, to give you ideas that can inspire you to create your own ideas in the practice of psychotherapy. My hopes of doing this is that it may widen the palette of possibilities to allow you to see a wide array of different things that you could do that is not restricted by particular theoretical models, but tapping into various schools of therapy that can help you in a synergistic and integrative way. By exploring these various tips of the week, I hope that you get to think about how to construct first principles that will guide you in your work as well. In this episode, I talk about one idea relating to William Glasser's 5 Basic Needs: 1. Survival 2. Love and Belonging 3. Autonomy 4. Freedom 5. Fun For the video version, go to   ⏳ Time Stamps: 1.

#11. The Edges and Leverages on Using Deliberate Practice Keynote Address
This is a keynote address given by Daryl Chow, Ph.D. for a virtual conference hosted by the University of New South Wales (UNSW). Cumulative evidence in psychotherapy suggests that we not only do not improve with experience, our typical professional development efforts by attending workshops, and engaging in clinical supervision do not lead to better performance. The aim of this keynote is to address the current cutting edge development of deliberate practice in psychotherapy, and its implications on how we can leverage to improve our outcomes.
