We teach you tips and tricks that to help facilitate the actual intervention, how to handle the class and do all the behind the scenes work (you can handle almost all of the intervention prep before you leave your office/home).  In our Intervention Certification and Training Program we will address several styles of interventions, dealing with aggressive clients, out of control clients, clients in the Criminal Justice system, family intervention techniques, and the upper elite/wealthy client along with handling unique and stressful family intervention situations. Through role-play, we will cover Bottom Lines, Love Letters, seating, the flow of the intervention and more.
