Therapy with Coerced and Reluctant Clients

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This is a test only course (book not included). The book (or e-book) can be purchased from Amazon or some other source.

This CE test is based on the book "Therapy with Coerced and Reluctant Clients" (2010, 233 pages). In this book, Brodsky examines the difficulties faced by therapists who work with involuntary clients including those who come to therapy through the judicial system. He addresses the challenges faced when working with reluctant clients including problem employees and teenagers or spouses persuaded to enter therapy. By looking at theory and research, Brodsky begins the process of considering alternatives to asking questions. He then identifies interventions and techniques that use assertive statements instead of asking questions to better address patient issues. Brodsky ends by exploring ways to work with client hostility, scorn and avoidance using case-studies as examples.
