The 6 Most Challenging Issues in Therapy: NP0021 - Session 1
Welcome to “The 6 Most Challenging Issues in Therapy…And How Therapists Can Overcome Them.” In this series, leading innovators in the field will explore specific kinds of cases and clients that can stump even veteran therapists—narcissists, resistant clients, individuals with borderline personality disorder, and more. Each session will focus on concrete, practical strategies that’ll help you when facing these kinds of difficult cases.
In this first session, marriage and family therapist William Doherty highlights some techniques to follow when a client isn’t following the treatment plan, continues to follow a self-destructive path, or simply isn’t making progress. Learn how to avoid sounding like a disappointed parent or threatening to abandon the client when therapy stalls.

How We Can Solve Our Most Challenging Cases
The desire to keep growing and improve our skills is a good part of what brought many of us into this demanding profession. But once we’ve acquired some experience and achieved a certain level of competence, we may begin to fall into a routine, just repeating ourselves over and over again. After all, getting to the next level—transcending our own current performance—often requires us to leave our normal comfort zone, not something many of us relish doing. Nevertheless, getting to that next level of mastery doesn’t just improve our performance—it can make us feel renewed as human beings.
