Course Overview

This course is a five (5) part series upon which each series is a building block toward preventing, avoiding and resolving resistance. One of the pivotal points of effective therapy is the successful management of resistance. Dr. Clifton Mitchell acknowledges that most behavioral health professionals have been trained in the theoretical approaches for resistance; however, the techniques covered in this particular series should be integrated with theoretical approaches and applied across the vast array of challenges that individuals may experience. Dr. Mitchell defines resistance and presents a model that empowers therapists in their objective of managing resistant individuals. This would be appropriate for NBCC, CMHP, QMHP.
