Research indicates that therapeutic failure nearly always results from patient resistance that hasn’t been addressed. In this workshop, you will learn how to bring subconscious resistance to conscious awareness and melt it away quickly for faster, better outcomes. Prepare to explore a revolutionary new approach based on the paradoxical premise that depression does not result from what’s wrong with you, but from what’s right with you.


Educational Objectives:

  1. Pinpoint the two primary roadblocks to successful therapy: Outcome and Process Resistance
  2. Use the elements of TEAM-CBT—testing, empathy, agenda setting and methods—to melt client resistance and speed recovery
  3. Crush the negative thoughts that cause depression
