Is this patient a jerk? Or is it me? Non Compliance vs Resistance in Psychotherapy

Presented by Brandy Klingman

December 16, 2020


About the Workshop

The relationship between the therapist and patient is a complex one. There are many nuances to navigate in building rapport, establishing trust, exploring and processing experiences and emotions. During this stage, the patient may present as obstinate or fail to comply with recommendations of the therapist. Many times patients are labeled resistant or non compliant in these beginning stages for behaviors identified as problematic to progress. However, the challenge during these difficult times is to be willing to explore the root of these behaviors as well as the therapists reaction to these behaviors. This presentation is a deep dive into exploration and definition of noncompliance and resistance as well as the therapists own reactions or counter transference around these.
