Better Results…with Scott D. Miller

 

Recently, therapist and researcher, Scott D. Miller, PhD sat down and shared his personal journey to attain better treatment results. At one point stating “…I wanted to help people. Throughout my training and now 30 plus years as a clinician, I’ve struggled with the deep sense of responsibility that accompanies that objective.” Can you relate? I know I can.
