  • 0 NP0021 The 6 Most Challenging Issues in TherapyHow to Avoid Resistance in Therapy with Clifton Mitchell 07.16.2012 14:47
    Thanks for a very informative session. The issue of paying attention to stages of change and the analogy to group project (inviting free-loading) really caught my attention. Also, a message I have heard from a few presenters is that people don't change because of logic, they have to have a compelling reason to change. Thanks for that very potent reminder.
  • 0 NP0021 The 6 Most Challenging Issues in TherapyWhen Therapy Stalls with William Doherty 07.05.2012 14:43
    I really appreciate the importance of supporting client autonomy, including their choices and pace of work. In my setting, we are getting pressures to serve more and more clients. Managers ask whether our time is spent well with people not making progress and, frankly, I ask that question, too.
    If, after various unsuccessful attempts to name and address the stall, how might the therapist carefully and respectfully decide that it's time to end? Maybe that's mostly about the therapist owning his/her own frustration or limitations (as in someone else may be able to help better or differently). Would love to hear about managing that.
