Every therapist has been there – in a session with a child who doesn’t want to come in the room, a child who doesn’t want to do the task, a child who only wants to avoid the issue.  This webinar explores what to do when a child client’s language and behavior say “no.”  Join us as we explore resistance, with a focus on differentiating resistance from avoidance and differentiating resistance from the dorsal collapse in the nervous system. Emotional flooding is explored as well.

  • Explore what resistance is in the playroom
  • List other possibilities for what could be going on with the child when resistance shows up in the session
