Clinician's Quandary invites your take on how you'd handle tricky scenarios in practice! On the first Tuesday of every month, we'll pose a new Quandary and collect responses. Top answers from the previous month will be posted that same day and shared with your colleagues worldwide. See below for submission details.
This month's Quandary:
I’m seeing a couple in which one partner is clearly disengaged in therapy. She shows up and says she’s interested in improving the relationship, but it seems obvious that she’s not willing to put in the work. Even in an individual session with her, in which I shared this observation, she maintained her stance. I’m at a loss for how to help them. What should I do? Has anything specific worked for other therapists in this position?
We want to hear from you:
