Why learn Resource Therapy?
Resource Therapy is a psychodynamic therapy. That means it sometimes focuses on the memories in order to attend to the cause of current issues.Cognitive Behavioral Therapy focuses on reframing and behavioural homework, and does not therapeutically attend to memories of the past.
Attending to the Cause
Resource Therapists believe that attending to the cause is better than attempting to lessen the impact of the symptoms, because when the cause of an issue is attended to the symptom will disappear, plus the client will no longer carry the unresolved confusion from the past.
Working with the right part
Resource Therapists believe the personality is composed of parts and it is important to locate and attend precisely to the Resource State that has the issue. Working directly with the part that needs change is the most direct route to resolution. Continuing to spend time talking with the wrong part is a waste of therapy time.
Resource Therapists learn there are 8 pathologies that underpin psychological distress. They learn precise treatment actions to attend to each pathology.
Having the right tools
Resource Therapists have clear guidelines for working with issues that clients bring to therapy. It is important for Resource Therapists to learn the types of pathologies, and to learn the associated treatments in order to feel competent to handle the various issues presented by clients.
