Description:  In the first session, we talked about why models matter.   In this session, we will explore the ways we can practically use models that will make our work more effective.  You will learn how to recognize the implicit models that operate in clients’ lives and in yours. In our experience, the best practitioners are able to design and develop models that work for particular clients. We want to give you tools to construct more useful models and better engage with your clients.
