Times New Roman

This training will focus on the theory and practice of Paradoxical interventions. While the method has long been known for its effectiveness in working with treatment resistance the underlying theory has been considered a mystery.

Traditional approaches that include behavioral, cognitive, and psycho-dynamic methods are geared for clients who are motivated to cooperate and participate. However, historically these methods have been considered to be separate and different from each other. This training will offer a perspective that unifies these approaches under one 'theoretical umbrella'. The model indicates that it is possible to conceptualize exponential and rapid change.

This training is designed to advance our understanding in working with clients who show no desire or interest in participating with treatment
