Thomas will elaborate on what makes psychotherapy effective and how you can use this knowledge to improve your own mental health. He will talk about therapist and patient variables in treatment and introduce a novel EA aligned framework that you as a patient can apply in your own therapy (or suggest to friends) to create better outcomes. Several mental health resources for EAs will be shared.
Effective Altruism is a social movement dedicated to finding ways to do the most good possible, whether through charitable donations, career choices, or volunteer projects. EA Global conferences are gatherings for EAs to meet. You can also listen to this talk along with its accompanying video on YouTube.
