Ok, I am totally biased with my client experience, so I say wholeheartedly YES! My belief which guides all of us in the healing field, is we do this work in the spirit of providing benefit to our clients. We want assist people in moving out of pain and destructive life patterns. It is a an extremely worthwhile mission. Thank you all for doing your good therapy works. This work is life changing for us and the people we are privileged to see.
It’s not easy getting out of your uni course or counselling training, only to discover what a mixed bag of problems people come to lay at your therapy feet. It can be overwhelming, help is at hand here.
Where do you even start as clients roll out a list of issues as long as your arm? I know it can be overwhelming for us as new therapists and those on the job longer too at times.
What Resource Therapy offers you is clear and easy to follow protocols from a client-centred brief solution focused standpoint. It has made my therapy hours a pleasure and taken the pressure right off.
How good would it be to know this client’s issue is related to poor self esteem. Yep, I’ve go this covered, I can deal with that directly using the Resource Therapy actions on rejection.
Oh so you have panic attacks, they are easily treated, usually in a session we employ the procedure for phobia and fear. It’s exciting watching your clients face light up, hearing a sigh of relief as you tell them anxiety is resolvable.
Dealing with depression and seeing small glimmers of hope week to week, with no homework. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder helped by doing here and now work, that addresses the underlying causes.
Resource Therapy (RT) as all therapies have – CBT, DBT, Mindfulness Meditation, Narrative Therapy, Family Therapy and the list goes on, borrows from other traditions.
Resource Therapy has developed out of Ego State Therapy (EST), no secret there,
so bears some marked similarities and advances. For those of you trained in EST if you want to update your skills we offer 50% discount to attend in honour of your training.
When I talk to other therapists about RT they say oh it’s just like Voice Dialogue , or it’s Transactional Analysis TA, Family Constellations, Internal Family Systems IFS or CBT Re scripting. Look I know nothing about Voice Dialogue or Family Constellations Therapy, I am sure they have benefits. I have read something on TA and IFS. I am trained CBT Rescripting. Resource Therapy is unique.
It is a bit like saying to the EMDR practitioner “EMDR is just EFT”
EMDR Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing has long used Ego State interventions. Please read the amazing work of Jim Knipe PhD., Carole Forgash PhD., Ana Gomez PhD., Maggie Phillips PhD. and Dr Claire Frederick’s, Robin Shapiro Phd., to name a few.
These type of trauma informed therapies like Resource Therapy and all I have mentioned here are so valuable. Learn as much as you can.
Moving into a depth of work which feels inspiring and rewarding as a therapist. Do you use EMDR, Ego State, Emmerson’s advanced Ego State aka – Resource Therapy, or another mentioned.
