Stuck! Resolving Resistance in Psychotherapy by Addressing Ambivalence

Friday, July 26, 2024 / 9:00 -4:30 Eastern / Richmont’s Atlanta Campus / 6 CEs available

This presentation, based on Dr. Buchanan’s Book A Clinician’s Guide to Pathological Ambivalence: How to Be on Your Client’s Side Without Taking a Side, suggests interpreting a client’s apparent resistance, as severe ambivalence, which is rooted in early experience, biological functioning, and psychological narrative. The narratives which these clients have formed result in the development of strong but conflicting needs (such as wanting connection but fearing rejection) that can slow down, confuse or even halt the therapeutic process. The natural tendencies of therapists to take the side for growth can lead to many kinds of therapeutic obstacles.
