About This Course
Defences are inevitable in any therapy session. If left unaddressed, risk of deterioration and drop out increases significantly. Being able to swiftly and compassionately identify, clarify and intervene against defences is key in any successful therapy.
This popular webinar has been presented for the APS as well as colleagues at Melbourne Psychology and Counselling. It will deliver the following learning outcomes:
- Identify some of the most common defences that can occur in therapy
- Understand the impact of not addressing defences in therapy (treatment drop out, client deterioration, sub optimal treatment outcomes)
- Develop a knowledge around “self supervision”
