About the Course:

Solutions for the “Treatment Resistant” Addicted Client will teach you why treating the most challenging clients with respect is vital to successful therapy and why the concept of the client’s “treatment readiness” is a myth. It is you, the therapist, who must be “ready” for the most challenging client! This book will also teach you how to give your therapeutic message greater impact and break out of unproductive patterns of relating to your clients. The techniques you will learn in this book avoid generating resistance on the part of the client and are easily integrated into any treatment model.

This course is based on the book, Solutions for the Treatment Resistant Addicted Client: Therapeutic Techniques for Engaging Challenging Clients created by Nicholas A. Roes, PhD in 0.
