Workshop Description:

Are you feeling stuck, stalled and overwhelmed with challenging clients? Your client may be feeling the same way. Unmotivated to change, resistant and finding no relief through therapy.

Join Courtney Armstrong, M.Ed., LPC, for this transformational workshop and relieve your frustration and boredom by discovering 10 practical, creative strategies you can use with stuck clients to jumpstart progress, elicit motivation, clear internal conflicts and effectively engage:

• Clients who seem resistant or have trouble motivating themselves

• Clients who appear to self-sabotage or don’t believe they can change

• Clients who continue to get hijacked by their emotions, even though they want to change

In her warm and witty style, Courtney will show you how to integrate multi-level communication, imagery, storytelling, humor, play, music and movement into clinical sessions. Through video case-studies, live demonstrations and guided group activities, you’ll gain the skills you need to trigger therapeutic breakthroughs, achieve greater healing and lasting change for your clients.
