Introversion has gained in popularity as a focus for research, a topic for pop-psychology books, and an abundance of commentary on social networks. Despite this, therapists may not consider how to best support introverts in reclaiming their superpowers - the untapped, and often under-appreciated skills that are the hallmarks of introversion. This course will identify specific strategies that introverts use to operate and thrive in their own lives as well as to effectively navigate environments that favor extraversion. Participants will learn specific techniques for working more effectively with introverted clients, and learn how working with introverted clients can enhance our work with all of our clients.
