This workshop explores perceptions of power struggles/manipulation with clients through didactic and experiential practice to promote enhanced risk-reduction interactions through mindfulness-based trauma responsiveness. Participants learn to reframe perceptions of resistance/manipulation by identifying and understanding survival mechanisms; enabling participants to develop broader conceptual reasoning and behaviors to support clients in recovery. Resistance or Resilience is a freeing and productive way of engaging clients who present as resistant.

Learning Objectives:

  • define and identify trauma-informed policies and trauma-responsive treatment practices.
  • Describe a set of mindfulness exercises to reduce their stress, emotional reactivity, physical response, or thoughts that arise in reaction to a “resistant” patient; and
  • adapt the learnings of this workshop to able to identify two or more skills they can utilize when faced with a client they view as resistant to help them view the client as resilient and change the dynamic of the struggle to one of support.

Like too many New Yorkers, I know what it's like to lose a loved one to addiction—there’s an empty chair at our family table where my nephew, Michael, should be. This is personal for me. Today we’re taking action to combat the opioid epidemic and offer New Yorkers hope. Thread⬇️
