About half of all psychotherapy clients have little to no response or can even worsen in treatment. Why? They unknowingly use treatment-defeating behaviors, or resistances, that prevent emotional closeness and successful collaboration with the therapist.

-Detect treatment resistance from the first client contact
-Understand the emotional factors behind resistance
-Discern various degrees and forms of resistance
-Recognize signs of anxiety in the body
-Activate and monitor unprocessed, unconscious impulses and feelings
turn a client against his/her long-held defeating behaviors
-Regulate intense anxiety when emotions are activated
-Mobilize the client's unconscious wish to become well recognize signs
of a powerful healing force: the unconscious therapeutic alliance

By detecting avoidance patterns and using specific interventions developed to handle them, you can empower a collaborative, vigorous treatment alliance with your client.
