Dr. Jeremy Sharp Podcast Leave a Comment

I almost didn’t publish an episode this week. After being out of town last weekend, I was strapped for time and didn’t feel that I could put together a full episode for this week.

Therapeutic Assessment

TTP #10: Dr. Megan Warner – Therapeutic Assessment

Dr. Jeremy Sharp Podcast Leave a Comment

Collaborative therapeutic assessment is such a cool thing. So often, testing and evaluation is viewed as a critical, deficit-based process (“You’re going to tell me I’m crazy!?”). Megan and I have a great conversation about how to use therapeutic assessment as an intervention tool to support clients rather than a punitive or scary experience. Cool Things Mentioned in This Episode In …
