This training is an introduction to the theory and practice of Paradox Psychology and paradoxical interventions. The method is known for its effectiveness in working with treatment resistance.

In the field of psychology there is relatively little understanding in working with the treatment resistant client. Traditional approaches that include behavioral, cognitive, and psycho-dynamic methods are geared for clients who are motivated to cooperate and participate. Attempts have been made to modify these approaches in the hope that they will work with treatment resistance. However these methods often remain inadequate and clinicians ultimately must rely on the client's ‘goodwill’ to participate in treatment.

This training is designed to advance our understanding in working with clients who show no desire or interest in complying with treatment. Research indicates that paradoxical interventions have a higher rate of success when working with treatment resistance as compared to behavioral, cognitive, and psycho-dynamic approaches.
