Effective tools for dealing with treatment resistance (such as motivational interviewing) will also be discussed, as will strategies for dealing with complex cases and comorbidity.  Case conceptualization and transdiagnostic approaches will also be reviewed. Techniques will be illustrated using video recorded therapy sessions and participants will receive a detailed handout.
