You’ve probably heard the therapeutic cliché of “they have to want to change!” – and there’s some truth in it – we can throw a lifeline to a client, but they need to grab it.
In this video I’ll outline some of the reasons a client may resist your attempts to help them, and I’ll give a few examples of how I would deal with some of those situations.
Ultimately we don’t, shouldn’t, and can’t force people to engage in therapy, but we can help to show those in need of it that there is no shame in needing help sometimes.
