Committed to Continuing
As providers we tell our clients things like, ’You can’t change other people; you can only change yourself.’ Then we go into practice trying to change our clients. This is hypocritical. It’s more practical to consider the social notion that: You can’t change your clients. You can only change how you interact with your clients and hope that change results. The concept of providers focusing exclusively on their interactions with clients and letting change happen on its own is key to the successful management of resistance and the pivotal point of effective services in mental health. Although most providers have been trained extensively in theoretical approaches and research-based methods, few have had extensive training in dealing with resistance. This workshop will explore ways in which providers can assist clients in remaining committed to continuing on with treatment and services, including examining the way providers build rapport with clients and how to treat client resistance with respect. It’s a task worth tackling.
