Course Outline


Resistance to change is an inevitable part of psychological therapies work. This course provides critical insight into the principle sources of resistance in the client, in the practitioner and in the language. It describes traps we easily fall in to with resistance clients and how to avoid them. Participants develop an extensive tool box of practical skills and techniques to navigate resistance and develop change even with the most psychologically stuck clients.





By the end of the course participants will have had opportunities to:

  • understanding the three central sources of resistance
  • monitor and respond to rupture in working alliances
  • respond to resistance in stuck clients
  • review resistance that emerges from practice
  • dealing with resistance even when change is desired
