Resistance: Fundamental Principles for Preventing and Resolving Psychological Resistance
By Clifton Mitchell, Ph.D
You will rethink your definition of resistance after listening to Dr. Clifton Mitchell. He asks the question, “Is resistance in your client or you?” You will learn advanced approaches for managing resistance when it is encountered in the therapeutic process. The focus is on the most common errors therapists make that foster resistance and techniques to overcome these errors. Dr Mitchell walks you through how to break these non-productive critical therapeutic exchanges. He reviews specific tools to help in this change: slowing down during sessions, learning how to become naïve and puzzled to get the information you need, how to deal with “Yes, but…” responses and how to plant seeds of positive behavior. This is an intermediate course intended for practicing clinicians.
