Trauma Disorders Workshop Series: Working with Defense and Resistance in Complex Trauma and Dissociation
Resistance is often encountered in work with clients with Complex PTSD or Dissociative Disorders. Therapists can become overwhelmed, frustrated, angry, or hopeless when the usual interventions are not effective to help clients change. Chronic resistance will be discussed as a co-creation of therapist and client and can best be understood as a phobic avoidance of what is perceived to be intolerable, either consciously or not. Participants will learn how to understand and identify some of the most common resistances and defenses and work with the client in a step-by-step fashion.
