Therapeutic Tools and Strategies for Working with Difficult Clients


Nobody comes into therapy because things are going well. The nature of our jobs is that we are dealing with people who are in pain, to some extent. And we want to help them have some relief of symptoms. But what about those especially difficult to work with clients? How do we get past the barrier they seem to be putting up to having an effective working relationship? This workshop will discuss ways to get around those barriers and have a productive therapeutic experience.
