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.

We are featuring a Q&A article with #aatod2022 Conference Chair, Dr. Ken Stoller, Associate Professor in the Johns Hopkins Dept of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences. This article does an excellent job summarizing issues that emerged during the conference.
