Establishing Adherence and Responding to Resistance in Clinical Work with Children and Adolescents

Establishing Adherence and Responding to Resistance in Clinical Work with Children and Adolescents

One of the most challenging aspects of clinical work with children and adolescents is working with resistant and difficult parents. Not only are youth commonly either neutral or opposed to the notion of working with a mental health professional but clinicians must also cope with the resistance offered by birth parents, stepparents, and other responsible adults in the system. This intensive, fast-paced seminar can help you to design your assessment and intervention strategies to maximize adherence and help you to expand your repertoire for responding to resistance on multiple fronts to maximize the odds of facilitating a collaborative working relationship with parents and youth alike.
