FREE Practice Question: Middle Phase of Treatment

Posted by Robin Gluck

January 17, 2018 at 9:32 AM

For this week's MFT practice question, we continue our focus on treatment, shifting from the initial phase to the middle phase of treatment. On the exam, you can expect to see a large number of questions on this subject; some will ask about general interventions, while others will focus on interventions linked to specific theories. So what should we be looking for when it comes to middle phase questions?

Moving Forward After a Set-back

bigstock--188561227.jpgA few days ago, I had the opportunity to speak with a TDC user who recently passed her MFT Clinical exam. Over the course of our conversation, I learned quite a bit about her path to licensure; it took longer than she hoped, as this was not the first time she took the exam. We discussed her experience using other test prep programs, how she felt following her first attempt at the exam, and the unique aspects of test anxiety that she encountered as she prepared to resit for her exam. The goal of this month’s test anxiety blog, born out of that conversation, is to provide guidance on how to manage the process of preparing to retest and offer some strategies and encouragement for those who find themselves in similar situations.

Standard of Care: FREE Practice Question

Posted by Robin Gluck

December 13, 2017 at 10:01 AM

Today’s MFT law and ethics practice question explores the issue of standard of care. What is standard of care? Simply put, it is the usual and customary standards employed by therapists in their day-to-day work. The standard of care guides all that we do when we work with our clients: the interventions we use, the treatment plans we develop, the consultations we seek, our record keeping practices, how we advertise, how and when we collaborate with others... I think you get the point. Standard of care does not imply we must be perfect in all that we do, but rather, we must behave in ways that other reasonable and prudent practitioners would behave if and when they face similar situations. If we fail to behave in a way that meets the standard of care, we leave ourselves vulnerable to legal and professional ramifications.

Study Smart: Quality Over Quantity

In my last two blogs on test anxiety, I provided psychoeducation about the benefits of moderate levels of anxiety, as well as guidelines for how to utilize self-compassion to temper anxiety when it becomes debilitating. The goal of this month’s blog is to help you identify some common and unhelpful behaviors you may be engaging in when anxiety gets the best of you, and identify strategies to shift away from these behaviors and instead prepare for your exam more effectively and confidently.

FREE Practice Question: What to Include in a Treatment Plan?

Posted by Robin Gluck

October 18, 2017 at 9:23 AM

Our practice question blog a few weeks ago explored the topic of assessment. As we discussed then, therapists must conduct thorough assessments at the onset of therapy to understand why their clients are seeking treatment and what they hope to achieve in addition to managing potential crises. Armed with the information obtained through a thorough assessment, therapists are able to collaborate with their clients to develop comprehensive treatment plans, the subject of this week’s free practice question. Similar to assessment, treatment planning is an ongoing and dynamic process. What appears to be indicated at the start of therapy may change as clients’ needs change and treatment moves in unanticipated directions.
