No Resistant Clients, No Secondary Gain

Resistance and Secondary Gain are always positive resource states. Typically, if a client becomes resistant it is because either you don’t have enough techniques to manage what is going on at the moment or you don’t understand enough about the client’s model of the world to understand why they are responding the way they are. Their resistance isn’t inappropriate. It is the client’s best attempt to get their needs met. But, you can make resistance and secondary gain disappear like magic in less than 5 minutes, never to return and the client never has to be aware they even had it to let it go. Learn the mindset and the technique that makes it vanish in thin smoke.
