Resistance in families comes in many shapes and sizes. No matter how it is presented, it makes the work of the helping professional extremely difficult. The aim of this training is to teach helping professionals about resistance of families in play therapy, their potential role in the resistance, as well as methods to combat the resistance of families. A family systems lens will be utilized to help trainees change the way they view resistance, while also providing the necessary skills to get past it. The ability to see resistance in a new light is guaranteed to change the work you do with families.
