Knowing the importance of the therapeutic relationship with an oppositional adolescent is one thing; knowing how to build that relationship with someone who wants nothing to do with you is another entirely.
This 90-minute seminar weaves together the art of relationship building with the science of connection in a relatable, practical way. This compelling seminar will fundamentally change your approach with this challenging (and rewarding) population. You’ll learn:
- Must-have strategies for building trust, repairing inevitable ruptures, and de-escalating crises
- 15+ “side-door” principles for working with withdrawn and challenging young clients
- Why behavior charts, worksheets, and natural consequences aren’t going to (and never did) create lasting change
- Trauma and neurobiology’s impact on meaningful connection
