Learn how to reduce patient resistance and boost motivation to change. Master skills that will enhance communication skills and increase intimacy with loved ones. This workshop will be highly interactive with many case examples and opportunities for practice using role plays.

 

Join us for a day of fun and inspiring learning on site in Palo Alto or online from anywhere in the world. Learn from David and Jill–a dynamic duo!

We will include three role-play exercises for all participants to enhance your understanding and mastery.  We will have experts to guide those who join us online, with identical small group exercises for you in breakout rooms.

We will show you how to deal with therapeutic resistance which is often intense with individuals with troubled relationships. Outcome Resistance means that the client has mixed feelings about getting close to the person he or she is at odds with.  Process Resistance means that the patient wants to blame instead of examining his or her own role in the problem. You will learn awesome new tools to deal with both forms of resistance!
