Interventions for clients who are:
All of us sometimes get stuck. Certain clients or patients hook us; some don’t change despite our best efforts; some are angry and resistant to our usually successful interventions. These clients include:
Ambivalent clients: Mixed in their efforts or motivations; wrestling with inner conflicts, want to change and don’t want to change or afraid to change
Resistant clients: Who don’t do what you have asked or suggested to make change happen
Demanding clients: Who ask more of you than it would be appropriate to give or express dissatisfaction with your efforts, no matter how great
Angry clients: Who blame you or regularly criticize you
Stuck clients: Who are sincere in their efforts but no results
Self-harming clients: Who hurt themselves or threaten to during treatment
