How will Resource Therapy be beneficial to you and your clients?

Life is a Journey of Learning, Growth and Healing

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.

A clear path to follow on the therapy journey is reassuring for all concerned.

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,

Your experience is valuable as a therapist

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.

Huge Differences in Ego State Therapy and Resource Therapy

Resource Therapy has Huge Differences to Ego State Therapy - learn them today.

Resource Therapy is a wonderfully brief therapy which has undoubtedly and proudly evolved from John and Helen Watkin’s Ego State Therapy.

I believe there has been some confusion because of these origins.  Resource Therapy is not Ego State Therapy. It has distinct differences and clear protocols and  certain advantages with it’s powerful interventions.

Both Ego State and Resource Therapy (RT) are ‘Parts’ Therapies. Go to see legends like Pat Ogden, Kathy Steele, Roger Solomon, Colin Ross, Norman Doidge or Maggie Phillips and other experienced leaders in the therapy world

Trauma informed therapies are a must in psychological practi

and you will all hear them repeatedly mention ‘Part’s. Both Ego State and RT find the part of the personality that needs to change in order to do therapeutic work. This is especially useful in trauma informed therapy.

Resource Therapy has a variety of tools that Ego State Therapy does not.

New with Resource Therapy

  • No need for Hypnosis: Ego State Therapy required therapists to be trained in hypnosis. Resource Therapists do not need to be clinical hypnotherapists or
    Hypnosis is a powerful intervention however it not needed in Resource Therapy training.
    Hypnosis is a powerful intervention however it is not a requirement in Resource Therapy.

    learn hypnotic induction. All well and good if you are though!  Resource Therapy’s protocols and actions are sufficient to address client issues.

Introjects are NOT Ego States. Resource Therapy holds that Introjects are merely internalized impressions of a person, animal or animate. These are Resource State specific.  Ego State Therapy sees Introjects as needing to be transformed into Ego States which  with therapist must worked with extensively and changed. RT works with Introjects in new and refreshing ways.

  • No need for an arrest

    I attended a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy CBT Imaginal Re-scripting workshop last year. Here we were fighting with the perpetrator Introject, sending the Introject to the police or the moon or wherever. We then had to repeat the process several times from each Ego State perspective, child, adult and so forth. Time consuming!  While it was hilarious, in my opinion it may not have been as  beneficial to the client.

RT therapists do not attempt to change the Introject, we stick with the client and it is the client who decides what actions (if any) happen for the Introject. This is usually achieved  in the one session.

RT is certainly positively client focused.  This further empowers the client in processing trauma, or rejection to feel safe and loved. RT Therapists have been trained in systemic protocols to facilitate this quickly and efficiently.

  • Resource Therapy has straightforward Diagnostic Criteria and Treatment Actions.  Resource Therapists are skilled in working with the clients presenting problems by diagnosing the concern, NOT the person. They then work according to the prescribed 15 Treatment Actions. These are systematic protocols for working with clients impacted by depression, anxiety, chronic pain, grief and loss, below par performance, and so much more.

Resource Therapy Personality Theory.  Resource States are physical and develop as coping mechanism over time, usually in childhood according to RT Personality Theory. Ego State Therapy’s define Ego States as split offs from the personality, this is derivative of  a psycho dynamic perspective.

Resource Therapy’s theory is supported by contemporary neuroscience and our understanding of the brains unique ability to rewire and adapt.
