Video #1 - Open Stage - Etapa Abierta (Duration 14:24)
In the Open stage, therapists practice open-ended statements and questions to enable the client to express the presenting problems, what they have tried to do so far to solve the issues, and what was the result. Clinicians master statements to open the session, provide active-reflective listening, maintain the therapist-client dialogue.
Video #2 - Affirming Stage - Etapa de Afirmación (Duration 11:04)
In the Affirming stage, the therapist reinforces client strengths and abilities. Clinicians practice accurate and congruent supportive statements focused on reinforcing clients self-esteem, coping abilities, and problem solving skills.
