Community Health: Using Process-Work in Social Services with Tim Berthold
City College Professor, Tim Berthold, will share about the growing field of Community Health Workers and how Process-Oriented Approaches are being used in mainstream social services. There with be a special focus on the technique of ‘Rolling with Resistance,’ responding to mixed feedback in individual counseling sessions
The technique of ‘Rolling with Resistance’ honors the client’s right to self-determination and offers a safer place to explore difficult emotions, relationships, and choices. If facilitators push back in the moment when clients are expressing resistance to change, they may push clients away altogether, and diminishing their ability to trust you or other service providers in the future.
