Engaging Challenging Clients:

"In Through the Out Door - Helping PeopleWho Don't Want your Help"


The Workshop

This full day workshop will provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of specialized populations as well as practical tools to engage and successfully support these clients across a broad range of settings. Supporting change goals with mandated clients including forensics, addictions, and borderline personality disorder will be discussed in an interactive forum. Using case examples this workshop will explore ways of working with pre-contemplative clients creatively and effectively. By combining stages of change, motivational interviewing and brief solution focused concepts, participants will come away from this workshop with new tools to engage challenging clients, whether leading to lasting change or 'planting a seed'. Attend this workshop and become "complex competent" in your work.
