Event description

Description

Join us for the final talk in a year-long series of talks as we investigate the science behind collaboration, the research on its effectiveness in therapy, and different means for building collaborative relationships with clients.

From Mentalization-Based Treatment and Open Dialogue to expressive arts techniques, psychosocial approaches and therapies for substance misuse, we examine a wide range of treatment approaches designed to foster therapeutic partnerships with individuals who are reluctant to enter into them.

Decades of research on the common therapeutic factors leading to change repeatedly show that the most effective therapeutic relationships are collaborative ones.

Too often, however, the notion of collaboration is approached by treaters as a starting point rather than a destination. Many individuals who enter treatment, and especially those with complex issues, do so either because they suffer from a basic distrust of the world, or out of compliance with the demands of others — scenarios that are poison to collaborative relationships. For these clients, the very idea that we start treatment with a partnership seems suspect, dangerous and bound to fail them. Try as we might to offer them the nutrients of a therapeutic alliance, they likely won’t metabolize what we offer.

Starting with the goal of a strong treatment alliance with our clients is easy; co-creating one with people who don’t trust us is the hard work. When we call such individuals “treatment non-compliant,” “difficult to engage,” or “resistant,” we miss the point, seeing their reluctance to engage with us as purely a matter of their own flaws or issues, and not reflecting on our own misguided belief that our trustworthiness is a given.
