When a treatment, intervention, or strategy isn’t working, it’s time to pause, breathe, and evaluate. If the term “resistent client” or “stubborn family member” couldn’t exist in our minds, how would we act differently? If we absolutely believed there was a way we could support this person’s growth, how would you act and think differently in the room. Would you blame the other person less and take extreme ownership of the situation? While it might not be true that we can find the needed approach or intervention, if we don’t believe it’s out there, how could we find it?
