Working with Resistance and Motivation in Therapy
This course provides 3 self-study CEU's approved by NYS
How do we work with a resistant client or one who lacks motivation? This can be one of the most challenging aspects for a mental health provider to consider in developing a therapeutic alliance and building the most effective treatment plans. This course will provide a deeper understanding of theories on client resistance, as well as theories of motivation to better equipped counselors with foundational knowledge in managing resistance in real life settings. The course will also look at the translation of these theories into practice to best support your understanding, along with application through case studies.
I am a Rochester, NY licensed mental health counselor. I have been practicing in the field of mental health for nearly 9 years and I am incredibly passionate about reducing stigma for mental health and improving education and access to care. As a provider, I felt a lack of access to continuing education opportunities, which along with my five years of teaching in counselor education, came the inspiration for the Counselor Growth Center. This is a branch of my practice Kehoe Mental Health Counseling, PLLC and has been approved by NYS to offer certified CEU's. I hope to bring you continually changing and evolving course topics, self-study, live in-person, and live webinars. I also plan to grow in collaborating with the amazing colleagues and other amazing clinicians I continue to meet so they can also have a platform to engage with fellow counselors and create a community of ongoing learning. My areas of passion reside in older adults, grief, LGBTQIA, as well as my integrative approaches I take through my work. I am excited to get to know you and welcome your introductions, collaboration ideas, and communication. Cheers to sustaining our spirits to learn and best support those we care for.
