Elevate Your EAP Skillset: Conduct an Efficient Comprehensive Assessment

The solution-focused mindset of EAP coupled with limited sessions are imperative for EA counsellors to conduct an effective and efficient comprehensive clinical assessment with every client. Such assessments can insure that quality help is given to each client and best value delivered to all stakeholders.

This half day training will give participants the knowledge, the insight and the tools to conduct comprehensive assessments.   Short lecture segments, visuals, power questions, handouts, case studies, humor and small group activities will solidify the learning goals.  Participants will leave with the confidence to utilize the new EAP skillset immediately.

(This pre-conference training is based on Claire’s popular online course: The Art of Conducting a Comprehensive Assessment)
